From the man resize2fs page:

       "The resize2fs program will resize ext2, ext3, or ext4 file systems.  It
       can  be  used  to enlarge or shrink an unmounted file system located on
       device.  If the filesystem is mounted, it can be  used  to  expand  the
       size  of  the  mounted filesystem, assuming the kernel supports on-line
       resizing.  (As of this writing, the Linux 2.6 kernel  supports  on-line
       resize for filesystems mounted using ext3 only.)."

I haven't tried yet but looks like it might.
