Yes, the https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Auth_remoteuser extension lets you automatically authenticate people to the wiki given arbitrary external credentials. How exactly to set it up will vary based on the authentication provider (what actually validates that the usernames/passwords are valid, when using this extension you're bypassing the normal MediaWiki login flow so your user account password on the wiki will not be checked). For sending a credential through a link, you would need some sort of processing server-side to extract the credential, validate it, and then set the appropriate AUTH_REMOTEUSER environment variable context. I don't believe anything currently exists for this but if you aren't too concerned about the security of the credentials it'd be easy enough to do entirely via mod_rewrite
