Yes, it was checked in years ago.  See src/fusefs.c.

Getting FUSE working on Windows is reportedly difficult, however:

Fossil-via-FUSE sounds pretty risky to me.  What happens if the host 
application says “File > Save” but there’s a merge conflict?  Does the app give 
an error dialog like “File I/O error”?  Will the user understand what that 
means and why it’s happening?  Does the user then manually do a “fossil up” and 
then save their copy over the top, effectively reverting the other user’s work?

At some point, you can’t insulate the users from having to know what version 
control is all about.
