Yes, you can do it.
First, you need to generate observations from your means
and standard deviations so that you have two groups of
observations, with appropriate Ns, means, and standard
deviations. This can be done with PROC IML, or you can
use the random number features available in the data step,
along with PROC Standard to construct these observations.
Then you can use PROC T-TEST to analyse them.
