Not directly. But...

If you rip them as vobsubs, the .idx file stores the original size of
the movie. If you double the "original size" here, I think mplayer
will scale them down to half size when playing. However, the
positioning also might get screwed up, in which case you'll have to
use the -spualign and -subpos options to have mplayer choose its own
positions for subs.

Good luck.
