Is there some reason you can't use a script to generate an appropriate
file on the fly (either the style spec itself or an entity that the
spec could read)?

For a raw single command line, one possible POSIX solution to
substitute a definition, say between style fragments in two files is:

  jade -d "<literal>`echo '(define target "chapt1")' | cat style-top - style-bottom`" ...

I guess there's assorted possible fun with sysids, like punting to an
HTTP server with a little CGI-ism to do arbitrary text substitutions
in the file:

  jade -d http://host/style-sheet?target=chapt1 ...
