Yes, the widget is called "xfwm4-tabwin" so you can do crazy things like:

style "tabwin" = "default"
    bg[NORMAL]      = "#ffffff"
    bg[SELECTED]      = "#00ff00"
    fg[SELECTED]      = "#ffffff"
    bg[INSENSITIVE]   = "#ff0000"
    fg[INSENSITIVE]   = "#0000ff"

widget "xfwm4-tabwin*"             style "tabwin"

The icon size is not configurable though
