Anything you can do in C, you can do in CHICKEN, so yes you can do it, but 
ActiveX may not be particularly easy.

If you have a good grasp of C, C++, and the Windows COM model, it should be 
fairly straightforward. You’d probably create a C interface to DirectX 
functions, then call those through the CHICKEN FFI. I know next to nothing 
about COM, but a quick search suggests that is not the easiest to work with 
through C. So unfortunately, even if you are familiar with all these 
technologies, it would likely represent a fair amount of work.

If you are interested in seeing what it takes to call C functions from CHICKEN, 
take a look at:

OpenGL is easy to get up and running, though ;)
