Analyzers are applied only for the indexed value but not the stored value. A
value which is added to DateField is converted to the same internal format
(for both indexing and storing purposes) and then added to the index. The
DateField#toInternal method is the one which is attempting to parse the
string into a date and failing when the field is created.

There is another option. You could create a class which extends DateField
and overrides toInternal(String) to do the conversion. You can specify this
class in the schema.xml instead of DateField.
