Sure. There are web services which create the configuration files just
like the Apple Configurator app does. Some are closed-source and
expensive, but at least one is free and based on open-source software.
You should check out

It also has installers for Linux, if that is of any concern for you. Its
Windows installers automate a big chunk of the server-side certificate
installation. For EAP-TLS, it assumes that the client certificate is
already installed on the client machine.

Note that the tool never asks the end-user to upload sensitive
information to the web site; also the OS X and iOS installers assume
that the client certificate is already on the user's machine.

Feel free to get back to me off-list for any questions regarding this tool.
