I dont think this is possible. If it is, I have never heard of it. Doing a simple Google search, I do not see any info other than using LDAP to query a group. I am still researching further..

The easy answer is no.  There are no built-in tools to do this in Active Directory.  You are able to create query-based distribution groups with Exchange 2010, but that's the extent.  There are, however, several third-party tools available, if you have an absolute need.
