To the best of my knowledge, no model of Pi would support that. However, the TV almost certainly supports more reasonable frame rates like 1080p60 or 1080p30. Since your optic nerve actually runs at 13Hz, you are unlikely to be able to tell the difference in practice.
I know this is an old thread, but I came across it after searching about this compatibility issue. I'd like to point out, however, that the above statement about the optic nerve is untrue. In fact, neuronal signals related to 60 Hz refresh rate have been shown to be present in primary visual cortex, which would have been impossible if the optic nerve "ran at 13Hz". Granted, cognitively we do a good job of filtering this out, but a lot of hypotheses have been presented about the impact of such an overwhelming neuronal response to an artifact that is not related to the video content.
The optic nerve, and all nerves, are effectively analog machines. So the impact of high refresh rates still may have a positive impact on viewer experience.
