2 odd things to compare. I see no relation between them.
Ultibo is intended for DIY embedded applications. It could be a base
for a native Oberon port, though.
uEFI is firmware, intended for booting another OS.

What on Earth? There is no connection or link between the bit-width of
UEFI or the OS it loads.
If the OS supports 32-bit code, which most do, e.g. Linux, Mac OS X or
WinNT/64, then yes, no problem.
32-bit Mac OS X can run 64-bit code. 32-bit Windows can't. Nor can
32-bit Linux AFAIK.
The closest comparison to what you said that I know of is that by
design, 64-bit Windows omits the 16-bit runtimes, so it cannot run
16-bit code: MS-DOS and Windows 3 binaries.
