Is there any way to prevent the spindle from starting (via any possible mechanism like M3/M4 or clicking spindle start buttons in the UI) if a particular tool is selected (e.g. my Haimer probe)?

If the probe is wired with the contact in a normally closed mode, you can use the probe signal to interlock the spindle enable.
This way, when the probe is plugged in, the spindle cannot start.

there is even a HAL pin for it:

spindle.N.inhibit - (bit, in) When this bit is TRUE, the spindle speed is set to 0.
