If you think about this, you'll realise that the answer is no.

Roundcube is simply using the supplied credentials to the IMAP server, 
which could be on a completely different machine to the one running 
Roundcube.  Therefore, as within the IMAP protocol, there is no API for 
changing a user's password Roundcube could not do that by itself.

If you're looking for a user self-service method of changing a password, 
then you'll need to look at the authentication method used by your IMAP 
server and provide a relevant tool at that end, not on the RoundCube 
front-end.
