It should be able to run PPP on it, but (as far as i know) noone
has tried. PPP isn't compiled into the generic kernel either, and
because there is no serial line support it's rather useless.
The console system on vax is not intended to work reliable and
you will probably loose lots of bytes if you are going to try
to put ppp packets through the console line.
