Unless, of course, you do it yourself with a secured PHP or Perl script. 
Just execute the exec or system command and feed it Mailman's newlist 
command with parameters from a form. Here's a PHP example:

$newlist = exec("/usr/local/bin/sudo /home/mailman/bin/newlist --quiet 
$forumname $adminemail $adminpass",$alloutput,$returnvalue);

(I use the free sudo program to allow the web user "nobody" to run the 
newlist command)
