It should be possible since TeX already knows where to put the \'
above the e.  If this information is available one could add a new
character é to the type1 font before it is processed by TeX.

You can run t1disasm on a type1 font to see how é is implemeted
there and then write a program that retrieves information from the
afm/tfm/vpl files and create a new character /eacute and then run
t1asm on that file.  If this works, it should be possible to put this
algorithm into pdftex.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
