I can't even figure out what KDE calls the package that includes KDM,
so I can't tell you what the unit is called, but if its anything like
GDM or LightDM, you can restart it by running:

systemctl restart display-manager.service

The installer for GDM and LightDM links
/etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service to whatever the unit file
is for the *DM service.
