yes and no.

The UIMA Ruta rules can be interpreted as single FSTs, but they are not
compiled to a single automaton as one would normally expect. There is a
prototypical implementation of such FST but it provides only minimal
functionality of the language. UIMA Ruta is rather an imperative
language and not as much an declarative language since the user is able
to influence/has to take care about the execution logic. In my
experience (also in larger industrial projects), this was not yet an

There is an TRIE-like implementation for dictionary lookup in UIMA Ruta:
the wordlists (twl&mtwl) and wordtables. They operate not on tokens but
on RutaBasic annotations which means that you can apply the dictionary
on subtoken spans. You need however some segmentation logic before.

So, a summarizing answer would be:
Yes, you can probably use some sort of TRIE and rules of UIMA Ruta for
your task, but both are not compiled into an FST. Only the simple
dictionaries are transformed into an improved data structure.
