Leasematic for iOS is the app you want here (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/leasematic-auto-car-lease/id593255005?mt=8).

I think there was an earlier post that this was added in later model year 2014.

Have you ever checked with a good gauge to compare to the TPMS reading to see how accurate it is?
