Yes. One type of action that can be triggered by mailbox rules is "Run 
Command" which can run any command that exists in an add-on "Bundle" 
(listed in the Command menu, enabled via the Bundles pane in 
Preferences.)

Typically those bundles are constructed to interface with other apps, 
but it should be possible to create one that hooks into anything you can 
run from a command line. Docs are at 
https://github.com/mailmate/mailmate_manual/wiki/Bundles
