No, there is nothing like that available in Lout.

The @Filter symbol is used to invoke a program whose output
is Lout source code.  It's not going to be any use in
modifying an EPS file; the most it would be good for would
be to call a program that does the modifications and spits
out an @IncludeGraphic as its output, which is not much.

If these other programs produce EPS, perhaps they are able
to include an EPS file?  Getting Lout to make one EPS file
for each label would then be another option, although a
very clumsy one.
