I suppose LiveCode could offer some fields in the standalone builder for you to fill in the path to your cert and they could detect if Xcode is installed and then do a shell() to call codesign and then some more fields for you Apple Developer ID sign in and then submit it to Apple.

On Mac OS X it´s possible to sign Windows apps.  You´ll need a CodeSigningCertificate and the free  software osslsigncode.
I am not sure, that the other way (signing Mac OS X apps under Windows) is possible. At least i´ve never heard of a way.
