Yes...
But I don't know quite how one would go about doing it.
I've made some stuff for terrablox, but I'm too lazy to link to much of it.

If I remember correctly, the texture pack is redrawn onto a surface (this was to add blank space to do a geometry trick). So, if you know where the tile you want to animate is on that surface, you can just draw over it. This might not work for tiles with transparency...

An easier, lower performance method would be to create multiple backgrounds and switch through them every step.
