I have a swap of 64 GB SSD. So is there a way to make /tmp mounted as tmpfs to use swap alone and not use RAM?

I'm not quite clear what you're asking. tmpfs is an in-memory filesystem but you apparently don't want the contents of
/tmp to actually reside in memory, is that right?
Then you simply don't use tmpfs and instead use an ordinary on-disk
/tmp directory or dedicated partition with a normal file-system.
