I've read an article about this before... I havent got the address, but apparently it is not possible. Off memory one of the problems is the sheer size of a delphi executable but there are a number of problems with the architecture between delphi and CE and i dont think Borland intends to bridge the gap anytime soon.

Simply no. Win CE normally does not use x86 CPUs. They use Dragonball etc. Delphi can only generate x86 code.

The only possible way would be to join the FreePascal guys (http://freepascal.org) and help them creating CE compatibility.
