Not other than the moderator manually sending an email to the poster.

However, if the post is held because it is from a moderated member, and
the member's delivery is enabled, and the member has not elected to
not receive his/her own posts, the member (poster) will receive a copy
of the post from the list which should be a clue.

I suppose the moderator could also "Forward messages (individually)
to:" the poster while approving the message, but this would perhaps be
ambiguious unless the staff knew that when they receive a "Forward of
moderated message" it means the post is accepted, but this too would
be a manual process subject to error.
