The Greyhawk Player's Guide mentions that Zuoken is worshipped by psionicists, referring its readers to PHBR5 Complete Psionics Handbook and describing these as "optional rules."

Greyhawk is also built on the back of 1e, so there might be 1e sources that are usable in a 2e game.

Well, this one is AD&D, though it's AD&D1st, not AD&D2nd ... but:
Scarlet Brotherhood, at the very least, has the "su-monkey" which is a creature with a psionic attack, and it lists PSPs for them.

And, though this isn't an entirely GH-specific supplement, it has official GH-specific content in this statement:
PHBR5 Complete Psionics Handbook wrote:WORLD OF GREYHAWK® game setting.
Psionics is an old and established facet of life on Oerth. Presumably it was brought there when an illithid spacecraft crashed on the planet ages ago. Psioniasts are by no means common, but most people areat least aware of the existence of psionics and often consider it to be just another mystical pursuit, little different from magic. Psionic guilds and secret associations can be found in major cities.
