The short answer is yes.
The long answer is going to depend on your platform and the configuration 
being used.
For example if asr1k or asr9k or other? One subinterface for all pppoe 
traffic? Traffic coming in on different interfaces?

On an asr1k for example you can assign to the  interface a global parent 

policy-map interfacebandwidth
 class class-default
  shape average 100000000

and then assign via radius the single qos user policies setting the 
bandwidth remaining ratio to assign bandwidth ratios (or percent) to the 
single users

policy-map 10M512k-parent
 class class-default
  shape average 10000000
  set cos 0
   service-policy 10M512k

policy-map 10M512k
 class VoIP
  priority 512
class class-default
  bandwidth remaining ratio 1

asr9k is similar search for H-qos.

There are some good cisco live presentations for both platforms that explain 
all the gory details.
