Can m43 compete with FFs dynamic range once we get 14 bit RAW files ?

Given about the same level of sensor technology you'll get better DR from a larger sensor. 14 bits ADC wont help unless the signal to noise ratio from the sensor is good enough. Switching to 14 bits ADCs might improve DR a bit, but not match the output from a FF sensor. Olympus and Panasonic probably think that 12 bits are a good fit for the current generation of MFT-sensors.
