No, I don't think so.

The problem is, encryption is based on the clear-text user password,
so this _must_ be stored on the server somehow (e.g. by using
guest/guest). While you can accept arbitrary PEAP requests, there's no
way to extract the clear text password from the request, thus the
server can't get the key for the encryption.
