Did you try \property Voice.DynamicText \set #'padding = #2.0
(you may want to replace DynamicText with DynamicLineSpanner
or Hairpin, depending on what kind of dynamic indication you're
refering to)?

Yes, that should work., you may have to excape the backslash, 
\\'e \\'a, I don't remember. An alternative is to add the ecrm fonts 
to Lilypond, see
and write the accentuated characters using the ISO8859-1 encoding,
like "éà".

One problem with this solution is that you have to set the font-name
property explicitly which means that you override the normal font
selection scheme. Instead, we should really mimic one more feature
of the LaTeX NFSS, namely the support for different font encodings, 
where the default OT1 uses the 7bit fonts like cmr whereas T1 uses
8bit fonts like ecmr. I'll see if I can hack up something.
