I was wondering about this myself since you might end up shooting something in RAW and afterwards thinking "I wonder how that would look with..".
Sadly there's no way to convert a RAW to JPEG in the camera after you take the shot.

With the help of some nice people here I found two solutions.

Shoot RAW+JPEG and throw away the JPEG if you don't want to use illustration/watercolor mode.

or

Shoot RAW, and if you want to use illustration/watercolor effect do as follows:
1) Convert to JPEG with Sony Image Data Converter
2) Save the JPEG to the SD card making sure you save the image as the next number in the sequence (so not as the same number as your RAW image, if the last image on the card is DSC00075 then you save your JPEG as DSC00076)
3) Apply illustration effect to the JPEG from the camera.
