I’d like to be able to dynamically update the manifest.mf and build.properties of the plugin to include all the dependencies copied over from other plugins.Your goal seems similar to what's provided by the Eclipse Bundle Recipes project ( https://github.com/eclipse/ebr ), ie turning Maven artifacts to p2 artifacts at build-time. So maybe you should be using EBR for that instead of implementing your own mechanism.
However, you'll have big difficulties to generating a MANIFEST.MF and making it visible to Tycho dependency resolution in the same reactor. There are a bunch of reported bugs on this topic, and it's indeed quite a complicated problem. Here is the EBR-related issue: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=464313
