Well, you can just adjust the window width with the mouse. Maximize the
windows, then resize them, one from the right, one from the left. They'll
snap together.

But if you want KWin to automatically tile your windows, then no, as far as
I know it currently can't do that. There are specialized window managers
which work that way, but they won't integrate as well into KDE as KWin
does. And strict automatic tiling also has its drawbacks, e.g. dialog boxes
get a size forced on them which they aren't necessarily designed for.
