Perhaps a contraption like this may work:
1. Install SocksCap / Freecap / tsocks and set it up to use Tor
2. Set your browser to use standard_http_proxy as your HTTP proxy
3. Launch your browser over SocksCap / Freecap / tsocks

With luck, SocksCap / Freecap / tsocks will intercept the TCP
connection your browser tries to make to the HTTP proxy, and tunnel it
through Tor.

As Fabian said earlier, this reduces the anonymity that Tor tries to
give you, so whatever reason it is that you want to set things up this
way, please make sure the reason isn't more security or anonymity.
