I use an organic shape button component, but there are lots out there.
check out Torrys delphi pages.

you can use the setWindowRGN function with *any* window, you just need i's handle:

The SetWindowRgn function sets the window region of a window. The window region determines the area within the window where the operating system permits drawing. The operating system does not display any portion of a window that lies outside of the window region

int SetWindowRgn(

    HWND  hWnd,      // handle to window whose window region is to be set
    HRGN  hRgn,      // handle to region
    BOOL  bRedraw      // window redraw flag
   );

If you want you can also creates a simple elliptic shape and use an onclick event to make it works as a button

I relized that this question is no more important to me at the moment, so I decided to delete it. To be honest, this is the best answer I received (I found a component like I wanted in Torrys pages) so I accept the answer.
