Here is something else you could do.

If the DN of the user is 4001, you can create a CTI route point with DN 94001 (or *4001, or some other dummy number) In CTI RP line configuration check forward all to VM.

When IVR sends the call to 94001 it will go directly to 4001 VM box.

In VM add the dummy number as a alternate extension of the user.

If there are lots of users that require this you can use CTI DN that looks something like 940XX.

Just to add,

You can also create a new VM profile in CUCM which has its Voice Mail Box Mask set to XXXX and assign this to the CTI RP. This way when 94001 is sent to VM the 9 will be stripped and there will be no need for you to define alternate extensions.
