    For accomplishing this; once the connection is established, iOS should talk to the VPN server and announce it's gateway; then the server should set it's gateway properly.

    Unfortunately this feature is not a regular thing and iOS does not have a feature to send it's default gateway IP to the VPN server; hence you cannot accomplish such a story.
    Also as far as I know the VPN servers (such as pptpd on linux) does not have this feature to change it's gateway based on client's request.

    Optimistically you will customize a VPN server by your own (e.g. you may choose an opensource VPN server like poptop) and make the feature available on server side; but you cannot bring the client side feature into iOS. Thats why I say it's not possible.
