Yes, but that was a few VMD versions ago. The procedure is a bit 
lengthy but simple:

1) Install the same Python version as in VMD separately on your 
2) Install MMTK plus prerequisities.
3) Copy or link the site-packages folder to the VMD Python installation.

However, the utility of this is limited because VMD does not permit 
passing in a molecule via the Python interface. The only source for 
molecular data is a PDB file.
