I've always seen libtool as something you prefix before a compile/link
command. libtool(1) doesn't say anything to contradict that idea; it
confirms it with so many words:

       LINK-COMMAND is a command using the C compiler that you would use to
       create a program from several object files.

so if libtool suddenly does something completely different, then that is
news to me, yes.

Back to rpath; I would hope that whatever tool is used, it would stick
in rpath options automatically and where needed.
