A similar feature exists, but not in the way you describe it.

Some palettes have buttons wherein a mouseover will cause some sort of
note to appear in the status area of the palette's window.  The
BasicTypesetting palette is one example.

Palettes which have buttons that use this feature in some way are:

BasicTypesetting		CompleteCharacters
InternationalCharacters		NotebookLauncher

The effect is created by adding an option to the button's ButtonBox[]
expression.  The option is ButtonNote, and it can be a string of text.

  ButtonNote -> "this button pastes the word \"foo\"",
  Active -> True] // DisplayForm1
