I think it probably could be done. Would require some really intense
thermal engineering. An introduction to some of the issues can be
found at http://www.tellurex.com/cthermo.html
Of course this talks about performance of the thermoelectric devices
and does not discuss how one would integrate them into a spacecraft.
