You can add the following function to the hooks for the major modes you
want to change. There are ways to do this for every mode, but you
probably don't want to do that.

(defun swap-indent-bindings ()
  (let ((tab-binding (key-binding "\C-i")))
    (local-set-key "\C-i" (key-binding "\M-i"))
    (local-set-key "\M-i" tab-binding)))

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'swap-indent-bindings) ; and so on
