You can try something like this

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(setq bibtex-completion-format-citation-functions
      '((org-mode      . (lambda (keys) (org-ref-insert-cite-keys keys) ""))
        (latex-mode    . bibtex-completion-format-citation-cite)
        (markdown-mode . bibtex-completion-format-citation-pandoc-citeproc)
        (default       . bibtex-completion-format-citation-default)))

it seems like ivy-bibtex at least expects some kind of string to be
returned, but org-ref-insert-cite-keys does the insertion for you.
