Is there a way to create a Swiss style (or other hand-shaded-like styles) shaded relief from a dem using ArcGIS tools alone?

Yes

Goto Model/Scripts tab then to Hillshade tools

I tried the Swiss hillshade tools in several different situations and it does not produce results that one could call "Swiss" hillshading. There is some minor smoothing in flat areas that's about it. –  Jakub Oct 9 '10 at 2:19

This student specifically used a color scheme that ranged from "Yucca Yellow" to "Larkspur Blue" to emphasize the Swiss effect in her hillshade.
