You can proxy between any two kinds of connection pretty easily with
Twisted (untested):

    from twisted.internet import serialport, protocol, reactor
    from twisted.protocols import portforward

    class SerialPortServer(portforward.Proxy):
        def connectionMade(self):
            # Stop the server, since only one thing can talk to the serial port
            # at a time.

            # Hook up the proxy between this TCP connection and the serial port.
            self.peer = portforward.Proxy()
            self._serialPort = serialport.SerialPort(self.peer, '/dev/ttyS0', reactor)

    factory = protocol.ServerFactory()
    factory.protocol = SerialPortServer
    tcpPort = reactor.listenTCP(12345, factory)
