The source code which handles makeindex has the following comment:
        // It should be possible to set the switches for makeindex
        // sorting style and such. It would also be very convenient
        // to be able to make style files from within LyX. This has
        // to come for a later time. (0.13 perhaps?)

The only solution I see are:

- hardcode the style you want in LaTeX.C (around line 448)

- have a 'makeindex' script which calls the real makeindex with the
  parameters you want

- hope that some developper will add support for specifying makeindex
  arguments in lyxrc :)
