Yes this should be entirely possible.

It should be a matter of running pulseaudio on windows probably via 
executing pulseaudio.exe from that command line. You may have to 
configre the default.pa to allow network connections and without 
authentication. The wiki explains how.

On the Ubuntu box e.g. when you've vnc'ed in, just type

  $ export PULSE_SERVER=<addr of windows box>

Then start your program from the same terminal.

That should be all you need to do. You can also fiddle around with 
tunnels but this is the simplest way to get started. Have a look at the 
pulseaudio website for more information on each of the modules and how 
to use tunnels etc.
