The way I've seen something like this done is you abstract all leaf cells in the design, then abstract macro cells. First LEFs of the leaf cells are abstracted, then the macro block DEFs are created in something like Encounter, then the DEFs are imported back in the abstract tool, then the abstract creates a LEF view from the routed description.
