I do not believe this is possible in SharePoint 2010. In SharePoint 2007 the ULS logging worked a little differently, and it was possible to register/unregister new categories, but in SharePoint 2010 it appears that these have to be built into your implementation of the SPDiagnosticsServiceBase class. See here for details.
