Yup.  Look in the TSM Admin Guide, Chapter 8 -> Using NDMP....

Go to Backing up and restoring NAS file servers using NDMP -> Performing
NDMP filer to Tivoli Storage Manager server

The short story - if you point the copygroup for the ndmp mgmt class to a
regular stgpool rather than one configured for NDMP san operations, it will
automatically attempt to use IP.  You can basically completely bypass all
the backup-over SAN bits.....
