We have a SharePoint 2010 site with multiple subsites; is it possible to have a workflow on one subsite update a list on a different subsite? Or initiate a workflow that is associated with a list on a different subsite?

If not, is it possible to keep two lists across subsite in a two-way sync?

You cannot achieve this using OOTB SharePoint Workflow or SharePoint Designer workflow.  Both of these are list or site specific and cannot go across sites.

However, you could create a Visual Studio Windows Workflow Foundation workflow for SharePoint and do whatever you want.

There is also no way of sync two lists out of the box.
