I was planning on connecting my Raspberry Pi to my Android phone to both tether internet and open a TCP/IP port to communicate between an Android app and RasPi program, but it seems the Android SDK is only compiled for i386. Does anyone have any alternative options to do something similar?

As a side note, it seems there is an ADB-library written for micros: http://code.google.com/p/microbridge/. Perhaps something similar could be done on the RasPi?

I don't understand the 'connecting' part of your question, you are talking about physically connecting using a (USB) cable? If so, why? A network connection to communicate between the Android and some program running on the RPi is enough to get what you want (client / server comm) ? Why do you want to use the ADB, what is it's role in this setup? –  ikku Jan 16 '13 at 11:39
