You can use stunnel or sslwrap to proxy through to tpop3d.
Have it listen on, say, port 900, then use something like

pop3s 	stream	tcp	nowait	sslwrap	/usr/sbin/tcpd 	/software/sbin/sslwrap -cert /var/lib/ssl/certs/server.pem -port 900

in inetd.conf.

An alternative is my tlsproxyd,
-- it's not well tested but it works. It has the advantage
of being a long-lived process, so that it can ask for a
certificate passphrase at startup.

TLS support for tpop3d is planned, but Not Right Now.
