I'm not aware of any such functionality. One solution, I suppose, would
be to use org-map-entries and a custom function to add a tag to all
entries due today. But adding the tags with org-map-entries would likely
be just as slow as a search, so there may not be much point.

Might I ask why the sparse tree search above or a simple agenda view of
deadlines is inadequate? The daily agenda provides a nice view of all
deadlines, making clear which are due today and which are past due. And
with a custom agenda command you can see only those items that are due

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-agenda-custom-commands 
      '(("d" "Due today" agenda ""
         ((org-agenda-entry-types '(:deadline))
          (org-deadline-warning-days 0)))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
