These "folders" are artifacts of the HomeScreen (or ribbon), so until some more of the API is exposed there (net.rim.api.homescreen.*) I don't think so.

apps don't reside in folders like they do on windows, you can get a list of running applications using:

ApplicationManager appMan = ApplicationManager.getApplicationManager();
ApplicationDescriptor[] appDes = appMan.getVisibleApplications();

You can't do it programmatically.
