Thanks for your suggestion. After some trial and error, I figured out
how to do this using babel:

<<< begin example org-mode file >>>
#+MACRO: kw src_emacs-lisp[:exports results :results raw]{(concat "=" (upcase 
"$1") "=")}
#+MACRO: ku =$1=

#+NAME: kwt
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp  :var kw="keyword"
(concat "=" (upcase kw) "=")

Try "hello {{{kw(world)}}}," but let's put it in a table [[tab:eg]]

#+NAME: tab:eg
#+CAPTION: Test table with "hello {{{kw(world)}}}"
| Statement     | Object          |
| hello         | {{{kw(world)}}} |
| this macro    | {{{ku(works)}}} |
| this function | =KIND-OF-WORKS= |
#+TBLFM: @4$2='(org-sbe kwt (kw \"kind-of-works\"))
<<< end >>>

This is very cumbersome for my particular document, which has a large
number of cells that I am working with. I could add an additional column
to facilitate this, but I don't see a good way to hide that column from
the exporter -- I only want the result, not the data needed to generate
the result.

That being said, the documentation states that macro expansion takes
place, among other places, in table cells
When I look at ox.el, org-macro-replace-all is run prior to
org-babel-exp-process-buffer, and it looks to me like
org-babel-exp-process-buffer also includes inline blocks, obviously the
case because this process works in the document text and in the table
caption. What is preventing it from working in the table cell? What is
allowing a simpler macro expansion to work inside of a table cell?
