Is it legally possible to make a pistol variant of any of the bullpups that we know and love? I understand that if the original SN is for a rifle, then the ATF says it's always a rifle, but...

It's not really what you're asking, but there's the bullpup draco, which is a bullpup pistol using an AK receiver.
The issue would be making it in such a way that the ATF doesn't consider it to have been "designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder." Almost every bullpup I can think of slaps some kind of pad on the back of a receiver designed to serve as a stock and calls it a day. Would a simple flat end plate satisfy them, or would they demand something like an uncomfortable wedge? Could they even be satisfied at all? The number of "how is that not a stock?" pistol brace designs they've approved doesn't make things any clearer.

Yeah there's no way that this totally not a rifle loophole will last forever.

  Sounds like you've re-invented the Gwinn Arm Pistol...?

   If the BATF considers it a pistol -- and I think they do -- then something a whole lot like it might also be a pistol.  Maybe.

Yes. Exactly.

Time to reinvent with an AR-180 derivative AR upper like the BRN-180.
