"No, the user's personal programs and configuration is not even loaded yet at the startup screen, so there is no way for AutoHotkey or a similar program to listen for keyboard events yet.

You can have logon scripts run before users are logged in, but these cannot be triggered by hotkeys at the logon screen. You can configure them under:

Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc -> Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Scripts"
