Contrary to KDE3 (which uses arts), KDE4 doesn't use a sound daemon and uses 
whichever sound system (alsa, pulseaudio, oss, directx, quicktime) is default 
on the system. This is not a KDE-specific issue then.

Try making sure wine uses alsa output (with the "winecfg" app) and KDE too
(in systemsettings > multimedia).
