Afraid I have to break the news.. No, you can't T into the dryer venting for your bathroom.

Code don't allow you do such thing either in some area.

Sure you don't have a wood joist that sits on top of the cement walls? If so, then just drill into that to vent the bathroom fan.

Code is what the City/State will allow to do and not to do.

It would be easy to do what you want to do, but I would not suggest doing it.

Dryer blows alot of lint, and if the check valve gets full of lint, then it may not do it's job.

Go with what Ed says just don't vent it where you gather outside. That could prove embarrasing.
