You can create shortcuts on Mac OS X using <createSymLink>. You could use it at the end of the installation to create the shortcut:

<postInstallationActionList>
<createSymLink target="${installdir}/MyApplication.app" linkName="~/Desktop/MyShortcutName" />
</postInstallationActionList>

You may need to visit the Desktop with Finder to get it to 'refresh' and show the icon.
