You can run a 32-bit kernel in the domU, it's just that xen-tools
doesn't have any support to set it up for you automatically.

Probably the easiest way is to login to your domU and install the 32bit
xen kernel package. Then you need to copy the /boot/vmlinuz-* 
and /boot/initrd*
up to your dom0 and give them a unique name (that is, don't
overwrite your dom0 kernel). Then just edit the config file to point
at the 32bit vmlinuz and initrd, and restart the domU
