There was a patch to add '%c' variable to dovecot-auth which would say
"TLS" or "SSL" or "". Or something like that. However that couldn't be
passed to PAM.

Yea, maybe the disable_plaintext_auth setting could be added inside
passdbs. But not before v1.0, so you'll need to figure out another way
to do this.
