Not that I know of. If I were interested in it I would probably
use GNU screen, split the screen and invoke 2 intances of mutt.
(Hardly what you're looking for, I know)

Have you tried how far you can get with the <limit> command? And
possibly a few macros with customized patterns?

Not automatically. If I knew the the categories in advance I'd
probably use the MDA (procmail etc.) for it.
But with <limit> (bound to "l" by default) and mutt's pattern
matching you can do a lot on the fly, e.g. viewing all messages
by you is just a matter of typing:
View all messages from configured mailing lists:

This discussion about Sup on mutt-dev might be worth a look. No
split views either though, afaics. I haven't tried it.
