You can achieve this functionality by creating custom GroupDescription and override GroupNameFromItem method - based on the returned name items will go in specific group. In order to modify RadPivotFieldList's tree at the top, you have to use GetDescriptionDataAsyncCompleted event.
I've prepared a sample project to demonstrate how to achieve all of the above. Please give it a try and inform us in case you have any problems or concerns.
