This is not possible.

It should be possible with JS and FSO, but IIRC Kim has limited the JS method
to work inside of AR only and not to do things outside, as e.g. launching a thired-party app.
Search the forum for related post of Kim.

Here is how I get values from ExifTool from a script:

var w = item.exifToolValue('ImageWidth');
var h = item.exifToolValue('ImageHeight');

Isn't what you are asking for ?
