Are the VMs networked?

You could fetch their public IPs and run nmap -sS -O against them. This
should produce fairly accurate results.

If they are all on the same Cloudstack network, you could also SSH into
a connected VM and run nmap from there.

I don't think that there is a generic way to obtain the actual OS
running on a VM via Cloudstack. It might be possible through the
hypervisor, but nmap will work in most cases.
