Does the -tt option on ssh itself do what you want?

" -t      Force pseudo-tty allocation.  This can be used to execute arbi­
          trary screen-based programs on a remote machine, which can be
          very useful, e.g., when implementing menu services.  Multiple -t
          options force tty allocation, even if ssh has no local tty.
