I am trying to automate building a virtual machine on kvm, is this possible with a puppet modules? I could not find a "virt" resource or any virtualization section on puppet documentation.

It can in principle, and there are some modules on the Forge that try to do this, e.g. here. Puppet's primary purpose is configuration management, whereas what you're trying to do is virtual machine provisioning. I'd consider looking around at the other alternatives before trying to do this with Puppet.
