Is it possible to parent a null object to a mask?

No. You parent a null to a layer, not a mask on the layer. What are you trying to accomplish?

With the latest release of After Effects, we now have expression access to mask paths and vertices:

That means you could write an expression that allows a null to track a mask as if it were parented. Dave's question is right on: what is it you're trying to do?
