Since the pipe sleeve is actually being used as a form, you could split the sleeve and rejoin them using hose clamps. Once cast the wall is going to keep the sleeve intact.
Be careful with this. I had a very expensive incident trying to fit a rubber sleeve around a copper water line as a temporary patch for a pinhole leak. Unbeknownst to be, the water line was eroded almost paper thin and when I tightened the hose clamps I collapsed the line and damn near ended up with a flooded basement for my trouble.
