I have a raised bed planter for tomatoes and live in the DC area. The only cool/cold weather annuals around here are pansies, cabbage and kale. Can any of these be planted in the tomato planter in the off season and not have a negative impact on the tomatoes (just to make the planter more attractive- its in the front yard)?

I'm not sure why any of those would have a negative impact on tomatoes. The biggest problem I can see is harvesting your winter crop before you want to plant your summer crop.

You will have to amend the soil as usual. Maybe planting peas in early spring would help with that.
