There is no such hook. It might be possible to create a global minor
mode to do it, or to use keyboard translations, but I haven't tried to
do that. The quickest solution that comes to mind is to put an advice on
use-local-map:

(defadvice use-local-map (after swap-bindings-in-local-map activate)
  (swap-indent-bindings))

I wouldn't do this. It's really ugly and it messes with modes that use
TAB for something unrelated to text indenting. I suggest you stick with
explicitly changing the modes that you want to change.
