Sure it is.  

1) Establish your VPN connection.

2) Synchronize the domain controllers.

Since you didn't specify which operating system these DCs are, I can only guess that they're either NT or 2000/2003.  

Windows NT:  Open Server Manager, select your PDC, from the "Computer" menu select "Synchronize Entire Domain".

Windows 2000/2003: Use Active Directory Sites and Services.  Expand the site, servers, servername, NTDS Settings, right-click the connection on the right and select "Replicate Now".

Allow time for replication before you disconnect the VPN.
