It's actually not the math mode, but the file spec that microtype 
stumbles over. Try with:

\def\MT at ls@fontspec at colon#1:#2:#3:#4\@nil{%
\def\MT at ls@fontspec at font#1 #2\@nil{%
   "\MT at ls@fontspec at colon#1:::\relax\@nil
     kernfactor=\MT at minus \ifnum\MT at letterspace@=1000 1\else 0.%
          \ifnum\MT at minus\MT at letterspace@<100 0\fi
          \ifnum\MT at minus\MT at letterspace@<10  0\fi
         \number\MT at minus\MT at letterspace@ \fi;"
   \ifx\\#2\\ at \f at size pt\else#2\fi\relax

after microtype.
