You're going to need a plugin of some sort here, even if you must write it yourself. Vim doesn't do syntax highlighting of any kind without one, and certainly not syntax highlighting of a configurable dictionary of words. The plugin could be a very lightweight syntax file only if you want, but you'll need one.

You created it already. You told us in your original post:

You can get all tags Vim knows about which match a regular expression using the taglist() function. Or you can use readfile() to read in the contents of a file and parse it line by line in whatever way you wish.
You could also make a static syntax file with your desired keywords.
Or, if your keywords are set off from normal text in some way, with special tokens or something, make a syntax file to highlight them based on the special tokens.
