Tornado is a webserver, django is not. I think if you really want it you can run askbot through tornado instead of some other webserver. It's unlikely that you will benefit from such configuration at this point because askbot does not yet heavily use asynchronous communication.
However running askbot without django is impossible, because it is written using Django framework. Just look at the askbot source code and see how many times there is a statement like
from django... import xyz.
