If \ef and Alt+f generate distinct character sequences, you can bind them separately. If they don't, you can't. This has nothing to do with whether or not incremental searching expands keyboard macros.

In that case, how would one go about binding æ such that it both exits an incremental search and executes forward-word?

There isn't, really. Any character that doesn't end the search or map to
one of a few editing functions that the isearch code uses to modify the
search string is added to the search string.
