Assuming you dont mean actually generating the password maybe you need the
  -h fd
flag to pw
or more specificly (from the manpage)
pw will prompt for the user's password if -h 0 is given,
nominating stdin as the file descriptor on which to read
the password.  Note that this password will be read only
once and is intended for use by a script rather than for
interactive use.

so something like
echo PASSWD | pw add user wibble -h 0
will create a user wibble with password of PASSWD

or
echo $PASSWORD | pw add user $USERNAME -h 0
setting $PASSWORD and $USERNAME as needed.
