No, it's not possible.
You can get a list of commands trough: virsh qemu-agent-command $GUEST '{"execute": "guest-info"}'

If you 'own' the guest system, you can install the telnet server (still available on Server 2012R2). With the linux tool 'expect' you can script trough telnet.

Maybe, you can use 'nsclient++' to send commands to your quest. I use it only in combination with Nagios but it should be a good tool to have a more protected interface in comparisance with telnet.
