no, Pulumi doesn't have a provider for packer. I just found this here though (https://juliosueiras.github.io/terraform-provider-packer/), last change however 6 months ago. I feel like I would not include a packer build in my infrastructure pulumi.
Also, not sure if you're aware of it, but Systems Manager Automation documents can replace packer completely.

No replacement for Packer, but you can definitely use Packer along with Pulumi - or any other AMI baking solution via invoking the CLI or managed service offerings.
