Python doesn't do GUI on its own, so the direct answer to this question
is "no, it can't take advantage of WinRT".
Of course, people might start writing Python wrappers for WinRT,
possibly leading to a PyRT package. Alternatively, wxWindows might
start using WinRT, which would automatically expose it to wxPython
applications. Likewise, Tk might integrate support for WinRT, in
which case IDLE might make use of it out of the box.
