I can't imagine being able to do that if not originally built that way - because the door would need the mechanism to move the shutters, which is through the frame, not part of the glazing unit (glass and containing metal frame).

If you can find manufacturer name (can be hard to find commonly) you could send them a photo of your door and ask, but I really doubt it. Probably stuck with replacing entire door with a new door from same manufacturer which has the in-glass blinds, a whole new door unit (entire both sides and frame), or settle for interior blinds.

My recommendation - I would not go with in-glass blinds anyway - their working life is quite short relative to the door itself, so commonly you end up with them stuck in the unit after a few years - or get a leak that causes condensation on the inside of the panes. Just a plain bad feature, in my opinion.
