Hi Ed,

I don't think so, unless SEM allows polychoric/tetrachoric correlations (I seem to recall this option is at present unavailable in the Stata implementation). If you have no latent variables, you could use -cmp-:

Roodman, D. (2011). Fitting fully observed recursive mixed-process models with cmp. The Stata Journal, 11(2), 159-206.

And if latents are involved, I think -gllamm- would be the optimal choice in Stata:
