At the moment this is not possible due to the fact that knetworkmanager uses 
the gnome dialogs provided by the VPN packages.

I'm currently working on a VPN plugin infrastructure for knetworkmanager which 
makes it possible to have own (Qt-/KDE-)dialogs for knetworkmanager. That 
means that the gnome dialogs will no more be used by knetworkmanager (only as 
a fallback solution). The work is almost done and I will get in touch with 
the VPN upstream maintainers shortly.

So watch the networkmanager and knetworkmanager list to get informed about the 
current status.
