Progressive Web Apps (PWA) is a proprietary technology used by Google to run websites as Android applications by using Chrome.

Unfortunately, as far as Headwind MDM team knows, there is no open API to create PWA from websites and run it in a custom launcher. Therefore, PWA are not supported by Headwind MDM.

Headwind MDM uses an alternative "Kiosk Browser" to run web applications in locked mode (without an address bar). This option is available in Headwind MDM Premium. See more details here: https://qa.h-mdm.com/16996/create-a-google-chrome-shortcut-on-the-homepage
