I dont know of any way to do it via iTunes.
But you could use use pyTiVo to create a music share and browse and play your library through the TiVo interface.

But if you want to stream directly and control via iTunes you may be better off with an Apple TV.

I'm going to say no there is not a simple way to do itunes thru the tivo.

Why is because Apple runs a tight closed eco system and they want you to use their products (apple tv or airport express) to play your itunes content around your house.

Both of those apple products do other things, though and aren't hugely expensive and can supplement the stuff tivo does.
