No.  Specifically you can't call command line anything, in many cases that
would be a security issue.  Last thing I want is users with email addresses
being able to run random commands on my mail server.

However, writing sieve config files is rather easy, so a small
perl/python/shell script could easy take a list of strings and generate a rule

That gives what commands are implemented by dovecot's implementation and CMUs
implementation.    Of course just because the SIEVE server supports a given
