Not directly, I'm afraid.  Maybe you could use a macro to define
some of these functions?  Something like

(defmacro define-article-method (stem)
   (let* ((summary-fn (intern (format "gnus-summary-%s" stem)))
          (article-fn (intern (format "gnus-article-%s" stem)))
          (doc (format "Like `gnus-summary-%s', from an article buffer."
     `(defun ,article-fn ()
        ...execute ,summary-fn in summary buffer...)))

(define-article-method "toggle-header")
