Can't you create two virtual hosts or two locations on your apache,
one of them handling requests and the other forwarding them to IIS?

Something like

<VirtualHost *>
<VirtualHost *>
ProxyPass / http://internal-IP-of-IIS-server/

and you register and as having
the same IP address in the authoritative nameserver of

<Location /apache>
<Location /iis>
ProxyPass http://internal-IP-of-IIS-server/
