Can people with root get TAP connections?

Is there a way to do this if you got root and access to iptables?

OpenVPN Connect does not support TAP mode at all (because Android does not expose such functionality).
Having root access still means that you need to find an OpenVPN app that implements TAP somehow, but I personally not aware of any.
