I haven't tried this personally, but it might be possible the replace the
window manager that KDE uses with DWM. I did something similar for a short
time with XFCE, where I replaced the default window manager with Xmonad.
The xmonad website has some documentation on doing this, you might be able
to modify it so it uses DWM instead:
