No, it is not. But everything really relevant is written at that point. It is possible to copy the file, complete it using some shell commands, and to process that copy.  See: http://tug.org/pipermail/luatex/2017-December/006692.html for an example. Luatex 1.04 does not complain if you delete the 
output pdf during the stop_run callback, so it is possible to reuse the original filename. Be aware that the stop_run callback is not used in draftmode.

In http://tug.org/pipermail/luatex/2017-December/006690.html I proposed a place for a pdf_closed callback.
