I don't entirely understand what you are trying to achieve (would it be 
something like voronoi lines?). In general, lines can be added to 
lattice panels using functions like llines, lsegments, etc. in a custom 
panel function, e.g., 

levelplot(z ~ x * y, ...
          panel = function(x, y, z, ...) {
              panel.levelplot(x, y, z, ...)
              ## do calculations on what lines you 
              ## want to draw, producing variables
              ## xx and yy, say
              llines(xx, yy)

Hope that helps,
