Could one say:
1-'So that you may see my face, I'll take off my mask.'
instead of:
2-'In order that you may see my face, I'll take off my mask.'

as far as I know, you can't use 'so that' in the initial position in a sentence but somewhere in the middle.

You could use this construction, but it would more normally be "So that you can see...."
