The answer is "sort of."

(1) -gllamm- can do all sorts of things, if you can figure out how to
specify the model.

(2) There are many special cases of SEMs that are classic econometric
models, e.g., various instrumental variable models such as 2SLS. Stata
has all of these. 

(3) A number of discrete choice models can be specified as SEMs as well.
Stata usually has these models as special-purpose modules. 

In terms of whether Stata has an analog to SAS PROC CALIS, AMOS, LISREL,
Mplus, etc., the answer is currently no. If you're looking for a free
program that does that sort of thing, might I suggest Mike Neale's MX: You can find classic COSAN at There's a program in
R written by John Fox that also does some basic SEM.
