I don't know of a way to do this, if I understand you correctly.  I'm not 
exactly sure why you would want to do this.  As Cliff said, you can select 
direct or relief connect for SMT pads to a polygon, but I know of no way to 
get it to fan out to a via and then connect to a polygon since the pad and 
polygon are on the same net.
Anyone else have any ideas?
