Probably. The question is, how do I get the workflow  to generate the ICS file?

I'm not at all versed in the ways of WF (we use Nintex WF here as our front end,
and it has no option to create  a "file"), but I'm sure one of the guru's here

I achieved the results you are looking for using a VS designed workflow
that created the ics file in a temp folder, and then used .NET - not the
SharePoint sendmail action - to send  the message. The SharePoint
sendmail action does not allow attachments.
