Yes, it's possible. DMOZ has 3 levels of keeping this in a relatively fair level.
1) part of your application to become an editor is to suggest 2-3 websites related to the category you are applying to, including a statement whether you are affiliated with any website
2) you are not the only one editor of the category you have been assigned to
3) above editors there is another level of editors (maybe admins?), whose role is to check editors' work, warn them and eventually kick them if they abuse DMOZ policy
If you are fair, if you admit you are affiliated with some sites and if you add those sites according to guidelines, it's fine.
