A separate tile will be tricky in this case, as there is no specific
context or interface you can register this tile for, as
collective.contentleadimage just extends schemas of existing content
types, just like collective.carousel does.

It defines a browser layer, which may help, but this may need a third
layer that inherits from the browser layers of both packages and have
a tile registered for only that layer...

An extra package for this integration is always an option of course.
It would be a very small package, but I don't think there is a minimum
for the number of bytes a package must contain. ;-)
