I can't think of a situation where having a shorter nose than tail is a good idea. The opposite is better.
Having said that, I don't think your board is a true twin-tip, so your binding holes may be offset (i.e. not centered on the board) to begin with. Get a tape measure and measure the distance between the nose and the first hole, between the tail and the first hole. The difference (if any) will be the recommended offset, and it will be towards the tail. Ideally you want to keep that offset, but it's not mandatory. However, if there's a conflict it's more important to get your stance width right.
If your mounting plates are standard, they should allow some degree of offset. Usually the binding plates will have 3 sets of holes or a number detents in the bolt slots so that you can mount them slightly this way or that. If you aren't already forced to use them crosswise to center your bindings, try using them fore/aft to adjust your stance width a bit.
