there is a piece of code in TypeSystem2Xml.class which seems to extract AllowedValues from
TypeSystem instance. I'd guess that's what you need.

UIMA 2.3.1 - TypeSystem2Xml.java:159ff

      // check for string subtypes
      if (type instanceof StringTypeImpl) {
	LowLevelTypeSystem lts = aTypeSystem.getLowLevelTypeSystem();
	final int typeCode = lts.ll_getCodeForType(type);
        String[] strings = lts.ll_getStringSet(typeCode);
        AllowedValue[] allowedVals = new AllowedValue[strings.length];
        for (int i = 0; i < strings.length; i++) {
          allowedVals[i] = factory.createAllowedValue();
