I wouldn't think you'd want to do it with MapServer, PDAL would be the platform of choice, and you could use any cgi script or language bindings to trigger that operation. 

You could (and we do) use MapServer to display the footprints of pointclouds generated from PDAL, and those can reproject on the fly.

Subject: [mapserver-dev] Point Clouds, reprojecting . . .

    Anyone looked into using MapServer as a means of reprojecting pointclouds on the fly?  It would add a vector to the calculations obviously, I suspect that I’m not aware of some other obvious item that would be a problem though.
    Any idea of what this might entail as far as hours needed to get to a prototype process?  Is it possible, and big show stopper that you can think of?   I may have some avenues to finance something like this depending on amount.
