This easiest would be of course to be able to use <xmltask> as a
selector, in which case you'd simply add it to the fileset to be
passed to <pmd>.

Until you can do the above (which would require some coding, maybe
Brian is listening ;-), instead of running pmd in processClass, you
can accumulate the class names in a file (using <echo> in append
mode), in a format suitable for use in <fileset>'s includesfile
attribute. Then simply call <pmd> with its fileset using the generate
(and possibly massaged) include patterns file.

The 3rd solution is to generate the list of files to process using XSL
directly, to output a TXT file of the file paths, in an
includesfile-compatible format again. This would avoid the
xmltask-antcalling-processClass for each match, but requires a bit
more rework for you.
