You can change the TZ variable in Emacs like:

  (setenv "TZ" "Europe/London")

it works for me.  I guess you can make a function like this (example in
pseudo-code):

  (setf default-timezone (getenv "TZ"))
  
  (defun send-message-with-timezone (tz)
    (interactive (list (read-string "Timezone: ")))
    (setenv "TZ" tz)
    (message-send)
    (setenv "TZ" default-timezone))

and bind it to C-c C-c in message-mode.
