Yes, it is possible.  All you need to do is supply the
filesystem type(ntfs) to mkpart. So, mkpart PART-TYPE ntfs START END.
Here is the help from mkpart.

 mkpart PART-TYPE [FS-TYPE] START END      make a partition

      PART-TYPE is one of: primary, logical, extended
      FS-TYPE is one of: ext3, ext2, fat32, fat16, hfs, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs,
      reiserfs, hp-ufs, sun-ufs, xfs
      START and END are in megabytes.  Negative values count from the end of
      the disk.
      mkpart makes a partition without creating a new file system on the
      partition.  FS-TYPE may be specified to set an appropriate partition
