Yes, it is possible. ArcPad comes with a toolbox and geoprocessing tools. There are two tools that might be of interest, the ArcPad Checkout and the ArcPad check in. If you export them to py you will learn their arcpy parameters and variables.

    arcpy.ArcPadCheckout_ArcPad("", "", "", "", "", "", "", The_full_path_and_name_of_the_AXF)
