Absolutely. As per the add_members help file:

Add members to a list from the command line.

     add_members [-n <file>] [-d <file>] [-c <y|n>] [-w <y|n>] [-h] listname


     --non-digest-members-file <file>
     -n <file>
         A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one
         address per line.  This list of people become non-digest
         members.  If <file> is `-', read addresses from stdin.

     --digest-members-file <file>
     -d <file>
         Similar to above, but these people become digest members.

     -c <y|n>
         set whether or not to send the list members the `there's going to be
         big changes to your list' message. defaults to no.

     -w <y|n>
         set whether or not to send the list members a welcome message,
         overriding whatever the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.

         Print this help message and exit.

         The name of the Mailman list you are adding members to.  It must
         already exist.

You must supply at least one of -n and -d options.  At most one of the
files can be `-'.

             Never anthropomorphize computers. They hate that.
