It shouldn't be a matter of weight, the French Matra Durandal weighs less than the payload of a Tomahawk cruise missile.

The Durandal is dropped by parachute and then uses its own rocket motor to punch into the runway. I don't know that the Tomahawk is capable of putting it in that position or if it has been used any other way than releasing it from an aircraft.
