Yes, several methods. All rely on functions.

1) Get the date from the OS, and set a property on the command line
with the value, then use one of the property functions to retrieve it.
jmeter -Dtoday="`date`"
Then refer to it as ${today}

2) Use the JavaScript function to create a suitable date string, e.g. 
${__javaScript(new Date(),Dummy)}

3) Use the BeanShell function to create a suitable date string e.g.
${__BeanShell(new java.util.Date())}

You'll need to adjust the format.
