For this example lets say I have site A with two nodes that mount one NFS share, and site B with two nodes that mount one NFS share.  Is it possible to implement dsync replication between these two clusters of nodes?

You can have as many hosts as you want, but you most likely don't want to use active-active setup via NFS or you'll run into NFS caching (= corruption) problems.
