I don't know that there is a way to get the baseline, but you could use normal top alignment, measure the text, and insert line breaks as necessary to hit the target number of lines and force a bottom-alignment.

Attached, a project that demonstrates this with expressions. Put text into INPUT TEXT (which could be done programmatically, and which could be made invisibile), and observe the bottom alignment on in OUTPUT TEXT:
