Indeed, that's certainly possible, although how depends on the operating
system you're using. Judging from your original message, with the "mount
-o bind", I'm assuming it would be GNU/Linux.

The Linux kernel uses a pseudo-filesystem called "devpts" for
the /dev/pts directory. There is absolutely nothing that prevents you
from mounting this filesystem on more than one directory. In other
mount -t devpts none /chroot/dev/pts
That should do the trick.
