I think you are looking for buildbot.process.properties.Property which
returns the property passed to it unchanged, so in your case it will
return a dict.

If this doesn't do what you want, it easy to write custom
renderable. This isn't really documented anywhere, but amounts to
creating an object that has a getRenderingFor method that takes an
IProperties instance, and returns the value you want to use.
