Just an FYI, this usually won't work particularly well unless the
proteins are well behaved. Usually there are missing pieces in pdb files
that need manual intervention. That being said, autopsf has a tcl interface:

package require autopsf
autopsf -mol top -top topologyfilehere

Check the other autopsf options to see if they might be useful to you.
