How do I create a local policy route so that packets generated by the router are policy router to a desired next hop destination? Local traffic generated by the router is not normaly policy routed.

I believe the Policy-Based Routing section of the Netiron Configuration guide may help in what you are trying to achieve
Below is a link to the current (5.5.0c) documentation:
Policy-Based Routing (PBR) allows you to use ACLs and route maps to selectively modify and route
IP packets in hardware. The ACLs classify the traffic. Route maps that match on the ACLs set
routing attributes for the traffic.
A PBR policy specifies the next hop for traffic that matches the policy. Using standard ACLs with
PBR, you can route IP packets based on their source IP address. With extended ACLs, you can route
IP packets based on all of the match criteria in the extended ACL.
You can configure the Brocade device to perform the following types of PBR based on a packet’s
Layer 3 and Layer 4 information:
• Select the next-hop gateway.
• Send the packet to the null interface (null0).
