Yes, using the PVE stack you would do something like:

my $storecfg = PVE::Storage::config();

# storage_id == the ID of the destination storage, e.g. you ZFS pool. 
$dst_format is 'raw' but could be also qcow2, etc.
# $src_size is the size of the zo import disk (transformed to KB here)
my $destination_volid = PVE::Storage::vdisk_alloc($storecfg, $storage_id, 
$vmid, $dst_format, undef, $src_size / 1024);

# get destination path
my $dst_path = PVE::Storage::path($storecfg, $dst_volid);

PVE::Storage::activate_volumes($storecfg, [$dst_volid])

# Then write to it, your case DD or also qemu-img convert
# dd ...

PVE::Storage::deactivate_volumes($storecfg, [$dst_volid]);

# add disk to vm
PVE::QemuConfig->lock_config($vmid, sub {
    PVE::QemuConfig->add_unused_volume($vm_conf, $dst_volid);
    PVE::QemuConfig->write_config($vmid, $vm_conf);
# done

But, looking at the importdisk code adding an additional case where
source equals '-' with a then needed source_size parameter wouldn't
be too hard, and would do exactly what you need in a general way and
probably useful for a few others.

Basically you then could do:

./import-from-xen.sh | qm importdisk 102 - zfsstore --source_size $[512*1024]

If you need this then it would be really great if you could contribute it to
our whole great community :)
(my backlog on work is just to big to add this on tmy TODO at the moment, sorry)
