The pitch bend control is supported.

ALSA sequencer ports can be opened by more than one application, so you
can send it from any program you like.

If you want to automate this,
1) load the snd-virmidi module,
2) use aconnect to connect one of the virmidi ports to the wavetable port,
3) use amidi to send a pitch bend command to the virmidi port, e.g.:
   amidi -p hw:... -S "E0 12 34"
   (use "amidi -l" to see what the port name is).
