I would not recommend it. My one carbon fiber front forked bicycle, a Civia Hyland Rohloff, had the carbon fiber front fork recalled and replaced by the manufacturer with a steel front fork due to a customers fork failure. This was on a normal bike, not a longtail.
I would not personally use a carbon fiber fork on a longtail unless I knew it was rated by the manufacturer as strong enough for a tandem.
