you can't. well, if you set a static route on each client to use
the private IP of vpn device on the other end of the tunnel, and
probably a static route on each host at the other end of the vpn to
negotiate the tunnel before to get on the other switch. Under the best
of circumstances (if even possible) it would be more work to setup then
to change one of the networks.

An alternative might be to "add a network" to existing site. eg both and at one location, configure that
vpn to use, and any hosts that require vpn must add a ip alias to their interface. But I never tried that
