Can yo cheat and insert an Index at the front and then just have it index
the chapter headings?

It does not matter where you put your Index, it indexes whole document (the 
logic behind it is nicely exposed in LaTeX, when you have to process document 
two times in order to generate Index). Indexes are usually placed by the end 
of book and most user search them there.

You can index chapter heading (why couldn't you?).

You can't index Table of Content (which would be pointless anyway).

Oh, and if by your question you try to know if you can use Index in function 
of Table of Contents - perhaps with big enough effort you could, but why 
bother? If you need ToC, then you create ToC; if you need Index, then you 
create Index. They are different things invented for different purposes.
