Effectively no, it is not possible.

I did once write a small program for writing an S-57 file with nothing but
SOUNDG features from a point dataset and could try to find that if that
specifically is what you want to do.  Put producing properly structured
S-57/ENC datasets is hard for any sort of general case.  OGR can produce the
files, but to do so properly it requires the input in a *very* structured form.
