VSTO it's self doesn't support IronPython, but you can certainly automate Word (or the rest of Office) w/ IronPython.  Here's some pretty rough code from the IronPython suite suite which might get you started:

You can also do this from CPython as well as our Pyvot sample which is available on the download pages does.
