The report viewer (just like any other report engine) is built to display columns based on a schema. You cannot change the schema and have the report viewer use it easily.

But ...

Don't forget that a .rdlc file is nothing else then a .XML file. That means that you can create it dynamically. It wouldn't be an easy job but you could surely do it.
