Maybe corridor would work for you: https://github.com/rustybird/corridor
You could point it at a Tor control port somewhere in your network if
running tor on OpenWRT (just to fetch the networkstatus consensus
documents every 1-2 hours) is impossible.

AFAICT, regular clients only make connections to authorities and guards.
