Point AuthorizedKeysCommand to a script that runs your desired command
through sudo.  The connecting user's name is available in the first
argument.  Just make sure that sudo is configured to allow
AuthorizedKeysCommandUser to run the specified command as any user without
a password.

sudo -u "$1" /path/to/command
