Yes, but something needs to distinguish the two (another attribute).
Are you saying that your appliance is using radius to authenticate VPN
users as well as to authenticate admins. that are using telnet/ssh/http
to administratively manage the appliance?  If so, check the request
attributes for each type of access.  Then, you can add the attribute
that lets you tell what access type the user is requesting.

For instance, I have an AP that uses FR to authenticate 802.11 users as
well as for local logons to the AP itself.  In my case, the
NAS-Port-Type allows me to discern the difference between the two types
of access.  For 802.11 user access, the AP sends NAS-Port-Type =
"Wireless-802.11" and for local logon, the AP sends NAS-Port-Type =
"Async" or "Virtual".  Figure out what's different in the request and
then you can have multiple NAS-IP-Address == entries with
different values in the other attribute.  For example:

vpn        NAS-IP-Address ==, NAS-Port-Type == "XXX"
                Group = VPNUSERS

vpn-admin  NAS-IP-Address ==, NAS-Port-Type == "YYY"
                User-Name = admin1,
                User-Name = admin2
