Not directly. Most applications now provide both .exe and .msi. I would see if you can get an MSI version of the application you are looking to deploy. 

If not, you could use GPO that will execute a batch file and that match file could then install your exe application from a network share. 

OR if you already have a start up script going, then you can add the installation of the .exe as part of the process..(mapping drives ...etc that may already be happening)
