I think that would be a two-step process; first to convert the ITRANS coding into Unicode, and then paste the Unicode into a Xe(La)TeX document.

There is a fontspec mapping package xetex-itrans that you may like to look at instead:


This currently only works with Devanagari and Kannada scripts; if someone can add Telugu or other scripts, we will be happy to include them.  Note that this allows one to insert the ITRANS code into a XeLaTeX document directly.
