Is it possible to control horizontal letter spacing in Vim (Ubuntu)?

Vim is a text editor, not a word processor or publishing package so there isn't such a feature.

Not directly, but if you change the font for your terminal window your font in vim will change as well. So what you need is a widely-spaced monospace font. Try OCR B (the spacing between letters is very wide):

You may already have it installed, and/or it may be available from other sources.
