Tycho injects the resolved OSGi dependencies back into the maven project model so other (non-OSGi aware) maven plugins have access to the OSGi compile classpath. I know that e.g. the PMD and sonar plugins rely on this when run on a Tycho project.
So in principle it should be possible to run another compiler as long as it's getting its compilation classpath from
maven's standard project model 


You could bind this compiler to a phase prior to compile to make sure it runs before tycho-compiler-plugin.
Note that I don't know anything about kotlin so I may be completely wrong.
