Prune enough and they'll stay small. But will they fruit, that's the question.

At one point we had 30-40 Emperor lychees in 25 gallon pots. We did get some fruit, but most of it split because it is so hard to maintain consistent water in thatcset up. We eventually just planted the trees in the ground. I think it is possible, but it would be very labor intensive and variety selection would be crucial.
