Use TFT as menu while using HDMI output?

Is there a way to use the TFT touchscreen as a display/interface for a PyGame menu, which would contain buttons that open software on the Pi, while the Pi was outputting the normal desktop to an HDMI monitor?

Unfortunately, no. The Pi only has one framebuffer, so you can only use one display at a time.
