I've gotten it to start with Oliver Stieber's patches.
However, at the time it was not playable, and had major glitches.
Since then, Oliver has released a new patch - you can look
at this work on directxwine.sf.net. I have not tested 
with that - appdb status needs update, but I want to 
track what's in CVS wine from now on.

At the moment HL2 does not work with CVS wine, but there
are several large d3d patches posted this week 
that are not yet merged. I was also told that
HL2 would not work until proper memory management
is put in place for surfaces...
