Do you propose to use it instead of gzip?  You can do it using
the --with-gzip option while configuring GNU tar:

 ./configure --with-gzip=lz4 [...]

On the other hand, if you propose to add it as an additional
complressor, then of course it is possible.  Note, however, that we are
out of short command line options, so the only possibility is --lz4. 

In the meantime, instead of

> tar -c [files] | gzip > archive.tar.gz

you can do this:

tat -c -f archive.tar.gz -Ilz4 [...]
