That Akhenaten begun to persecute and oppress the traditional cults, overall the one of Amen, after the death of the Father, is a good hypothesis in the context of the coregency between father and son. It doesn't seem that the deified Amenhotep was ready to renounce to Amen ... so the son had, in a certain measure, to tolerate [bear?] the presence of the cult of the traditional deity out of Akhetaten, even if he depotentiated its temples not taking part to rituals and liturgies.
