The answer remains "No".  "Independent from AUCTeX, LaTeX and in fact
also TeX" is a graded answer.  As preview-latex is not independently
useful without AUCTeX, it does not work with tex-mode.el.  tex-mode.el
would probably be low-hanging fruit as adapting preview-latex would
basically require finding/abstracting a common process/commandline model
for both AUCTeX and tex-mode.el.

But so far nobody hated AUCTeX enough to find that worth the trouble...
