I'll agree with Mark here- I've used this trick a few times.
Take a look at how node previews are generated.

I think you want to research '#button' and '#after_build'. '#button'
will send you form values without a full submission. '#after_build'
will allow you to do something with the built values (node.module uses
#after_build to prepend the rendered preview version)
You may have to supply a '#name' element for your button so that it
doesn't get stuck in 'op'. I'm a little rusty on that point.
