Is it possible to run a report via Kace to discover workstations that may not have the Windows OS activated?

The easiest way would be a Custom Inventory Rule:
1. Go to Inventory | Software |New
2. Fill out all fields.
3. Under Custom Inventory Rule enter the following:
ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c c:\windows\system32\cscript.exe c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs -dli|findstr tatus)
It runs silently the slmgr to get different values. These values are checked against tatus (so it can be Status or status depending on the language)
4. after the next check in there is a new field in the inventory under Custom Inventory Fields
5. you can create a report with the wizard. The added Custom Inventory Field values are found under Custom Fields
