No; you will need to check out, set the property, and commit. (You could

You can set your clients' config files to use auto-props and
automatically set the eol-style in the future.

Auto-props usually only take effect when you commit new files, and
not when you already have files in the repository, but I believe
there is a script around which will apply auto-props definitions
after the fact.

You can write a pre-commit hook (or use an existing one) which
verifies that the properties of committed files match your policy,
and rejects files that do not conform.
