If you can script the creation of the encryption keys and the initial disk encryption, then you should be able to use Puppet to do that, likely with an Exec resource unless you decide to write a full resource type/provider for the encrypted disk configuration.

Also have a look at hiera-gpg, and that may be useful for storing the generated encryption key data and retrieving it from within your Puppet manifests, if need be.
