Such a module doesn't exist, mainly as the control loops to control the lens require image analysis for statistics, and those aren't exposed.

If you don't mind it not being the Raspberry Pi camera, you can get USB webcams that focus themselves. Also some compact and SLR cameras can be connected via USB for remote operation.
