According to DxO the t-stop of the 25/1.4 on E-M1 is 1.7, but not quite clear whether that affects the DoF too.

It doesn't. DOF is affected by the actual aperture diaphragm diameter rather than the light transmission characteristics of the lens. I've observed this many times in actual use with fast lenses.
