Such ability exists. You can specify port, like this:

VBoxManage modifyvm <my VM> --nic1 vde
VBoxManage modifyvm <my VM> --vdenet1 /tmp/vdeswitch[5] (where [5] is
the number of port in VDE switch)

You must also configure VDE switch to map between it's ports and VLANs:
vde$ vlan/create 5
vde$ port/setvlan 5 5  (map switch port 5 to VLAN 5)
