Regardless of why you want to do this it appears to me that you probably have your Minimum set in the Baseline Options section of InDesign's Text Frame Options dialog (found through Object Menu>Text Frame Options) to a value such as that shown in the right picture below. Note the difference between the two pictures in regard to the text's distance from the top of the frame.

Hi David,

do your layout in InDesign. Keep it simple, use a font that is available with InDesign and Illustrator on your machine.

Export to PDF (Print) with the PDF/X-4 export preset without bleed from InDesign.

Open that PDF page as editable artboard in Illustrator with the File > Open command.

 

The position of the text should be exactly the same if the used font is available in Illustrator.
