Actually, no, I don't think it is. I spent the better part of the last
couple hours reading the code and I can't find any way to do it.

The Woo code basically makes a fundamental assumption that a menu item
is a static URL. There's no way to make it call PHP code, there's no
way to make it have a callback, there's basically no way to do
anything except make it a static URL.

Side note, this makes the new menu system exceedingly fragile. If you
change the URL of a Page or change the category name or anything else
along those lines, your menus are now broken.
