Unless they've added this capability since I last checked, ASA units cannot terminate GRE tunnels.  If you have a router behind the ASA, you can terminate the tunnel on that and have the ASA handle the encryption, but that's as close as you're likely to get to the solution you're proposing.

I just double-checked.  No GRE termination on an ASA, unfortunately.
