In essence, as Maarten's reference implies, it can be done. I don't have a precise recipe for your particular request, but the code in -corrtable- from SSC shows one strategy: 

loop over cells in table { 
	draw a graph for each cell with desired text and colour
} 

combine the graphs 

Another strategy would resemble ways in which people draw heat maps, or indeed maps, by a series of calls to -twoway area-. Sergiy Radyakin has done something similar to that, but I can't vouch for whether he has code to do what you want that is also publicly available.
