Actually, you could do this too within LilyPond, since you can use
\markup commands to create several columns and you can embed scores
into a \markup command. Here's a simple example:

 ragged-right = ##t

   \score{\relative c'{ c4 d e f g f e d c1 }\layout{}}
   \score{\relative c'{ \key c \minor c4 d es f g f es d c1 }\layout{}}
   \score{\relative c'{ \key d \major d4 e fis g a g fis e d1 }\layout{}}
   \score{\relative c'{ \key c \minor d4 e f g a g f e d1 }\layout{}}

You can easily fix the numbering, either by specifying in as an instrument
name or using markup commands.
However, as far as I know there is no way to specify a fixed line width for the separate scores without at the same time specifying the same line width for the
full document (which doesn't make sense, of course).

To conclude; It is possible within LilyPond but probably much more convenient
to use lilypond-book in a two column LaTeX document.
