The official tool from puppet for running commands on your nodes (and it allows you to filter by host, facter facts, classes, etc.) is mcollective.

There is also a REST api that you can use to interact with the master, but I'm not sure about the agents. That can be used to access reports. I think there is also functionality in puppetdb, but I don't have direct familiarity with that.
