There is not an API for a thread to access another threads local storage directly.
The DPDK TLS is wrapper around the glibc (and Windows) implementation of TLS.

For particular data structures, you can create a global data structure that is an
array of pointers indexed by lcore, and each lcore fills in itself.

Or do a more complex API via message passing.
