Mapproxy itself doesn't render the tiles. For this job you need an
rendering software like mapnik or MapServer. To answer your question:
Yes it is possible to use the combination of MapProxy an mapnik to
render the OSM tiles.

I'm not sure if you have already an working mapnik setup. Did you try to
use the generate_tiles.py to render a demo map?

If this is working you can setup mapproxy to use mapnik as source. You
can have a look at a working setup at OSGeoLive [1]
There is also an example in the MapProxy documentation [2] but it is a
little hidden in the Retina Example.
