Azureus/Vuze has the ability to bind to a specific network interface (a recently added feature a few months ago)

I don't know if it's fully implemented or how it works exactly...but in the network connections options...you can give it an interface name....for example mine might be....

net8

Which attaches to my wireless network adapter.  In this way the torrent client should only use that interface.  Azureus is also set to use multiple interfaces...so i don't know if it'll try and use your ADSL anyway.

At the bottom of the options there's a check box that says

Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available...

This should prevent it from wandering off onto your other connection

Firefox can be forced to an interface by tweaking the proxy options and doing proxy by IP...if you set it to be the same as your LAN IP, it should use the lan and not the dialup.
