It seems this list is not very active, but I'll go ahead and answer my own question. It *does* appear that the above functionality is supported according to this page:

https://www.nginx.com/resources/admin-guide/mail-proxy/

It says "If authentication is successful, the authentication server will choose an upstream server and redirect the request."

If I'm understanding this correctly, I just need to create an authentication server that instructs Nginx which upstream server to send the request to based on the user's credentials.
