I've managed to add an icon to kmails taskbar to file a message to my spam 
folder (I just have a cron job run every night to learn from messages there).  
Its a little obtuse, but it works:

First add a filter to the end of your rules list (settings->configure filters)
name this filter whatever you want the button to be named ("filter action " 
will be prepended to the name)

Have the filter match "<size> is greater than or equal to 1" (so it will match 
all messages)

Uncheck all the "Apply this filter:" options, check "if this filter matches, 
stop processing here" and "Add this filter to the Apply Filter Actions menu"

Then, under filter actions, choose the action you want.  I just have mine set 
to file into folder Spam, but you could easily pipe the message or execute a 

Then, once the filter is setup however you want it, go to Settings->Configure 
toobars.  There should be an item in the list "Filter action: <name>"
