Harvard liked your application enough to defer you, so they liked what they initially saw (otherwise you would have been rejected). So they liked your initial essay.
What would you say about attaching a patent application that I wrote when I was 14 ?
Think if anything has changed since you first applied for early admission to your "dream school."
Write a deferral letter. Elaborate on the impressive things you have accomplished since you applied. Discuss the accomplishments or accolades you’ve received in recent months. Tell them what you have been up to. Make your candidate profile stronger.
Maybe also a short 300 word essay ? I harden to believe it will clatter the application too much.
So essentially don't submit anything, only possibly a LoR and only if its of real importance.
Problem is I don't think that's enough to "turn" their decision.
