I think that this is not possible. Yet.

Deformation exists in TopSolid 7. It is in the shape tab. If you go to the drop down menu and then Other Operations, you will find the deformation function. This function lets you bend, roll, twist... a shape.

If you are looking for surface control point modifications, then no, that doesn't exist yet in 7.
