Besides very fragile methods of iterating through characters and  
performing graphics transformations on them, which is theoretically  
possible but unlikely, no. Support for this type of thing would need  
to be implemented at a lower level, i.e., by XeTeX, but it's not the  
type of thing that many people actually want. Fake small caps and  
slanted italics are modern hallmarks of poor typography.
