Yes, as far as I can see, org-todo uses the TIME argument of
org-add-planning-info for the org-extend-today-until feature, but
there's not a way for the caller to directly specify the timestamp.

Something along those lines would probably be the most straightforward.
Light testing with the command below suggests overriding current-time is

    (defun my-org-todo-time-machine ()
      (cl-letf (((symbol-function 'current-time)
                 (lambda ()
                   (apply #'encode-time (org-parse-time-string
                                         "2019-11-27 Mi 16:44")))))
        (call-interactively #'org-todo)))
