so long as you can issue statements against the database and you have permissions to do so, you can create a view

--this is VB..dont' know delphi

dim sql as string
sql = "create view myfiew as select * from mytable"

connection.execute sql

you can run a CREATE VIEW statement like any other DELETE, UPDATE, etc statement using the TADOCOnnection object.
of course, given the login you use to connect has the right permissions.

TAdoConnection has a Execute method

var AdoConnection1: TAdoConnection;

AdoConnection1Execute('CREATE VIEW AS SELECT * FROM TABLE', cmdText, [eoExecuteNoRecords]);
