Not yet, as far as I know. Philipp Lehman describes in his 
fontinstallationguide an approach.

The general problem is that there aren't so many fonts with OSF and 
real Small Caps. And when you found one you have to create two 
PostScript fonts because otherwise you wouldn't have access to 330+ 
glyphs. The only 'standard' is the 'expert encoding' by Adobe. So you 
have to ask yourself: is the expense worth?

With an easy way to have access to rich Unicode encoded TrueType or 
OpenType fonts it would make much sense to write an extension to NFSS2 
... (I started writing on a Perl script to ease the use of TrueType as 
PostScript Type 1 in TeX, that fixes many problems, needs user input 
into the Perl code for particular fonts to fix issues with glyph names, 
could be out after Christmas, uses non-standard font encodings, but I'm 
no TeXnician to write any useful TeX code.)
