I've been using the lenses for years now without knowing it (and always asking myself why there was a odd 0-6 numbering instead of f-stop values ).

Thank you!

By FT scale, you mean the scale that has numbers from 1 to 6? instead of aperture values?

Yes, that is what I mean. Before the Pen-FT was introduced, there was only the f/1.4 to f/16 scale on the aperture ring. The FT version of the 40/1.4 has also the FT scale from 0 to 6 on the other side of the aperture ring. You can pull the ring forward and twist the scale.

As a non english native speaker I find a bit difficult to understand your phrasing "pull the ring forward and twist the scale". Can you please elaborate with a different wording (I tried to gently "pull" the aperture ring but it can only be rotated)?

It must be very obvious that I am also not a native English speaker. Here is the explanation from the Olympus Pen-FT manual. Older Pen-F lenses do not have the FT-scale (TTL-scale).
