Sure. I think Greg Newby has done something quite similar to this.

Xen currently doesn't support booting domains via PXE, though at
some point someone talked about adding it. Basically, the domain
builder would do the PXE request and tftp the kernel image that
would be place in the domain.

I'm sure you could get the domains booting sans PXE without too
much hassle anyhow.
