The easiest way to do that would be to use Olympus viewer, which will give you the exact same result as your camera, then export the resulting file as a tiff to whatever software you normally use.

That sounds a bit tedious

It may sound tedious, but Papillon gave you the right answer. Olympus knows the recipe for turning its .orf into its .jpg, and it's hard to get the exact flavor without the exact recipe. Olympus can compensate for specific sensor and lens characteristics of its hardware. The vivid processing mode may even adjust luminous blue areas, including fluorescent signs, to look like sunny skies. (Camera makers know that their products are judged by skies and skins.)

The challenge presented here, of simulating Olympus's raw-processing, has come up a couple times this week. Maybe Olympus should add a camera function to save images as .tif files, processed as .jpg but saved without compression for further processing.
