Is an FPP mode possible in the game?
A developer of the game has commented on this topic when asked on Discord. The dev said that Aliens: Fireteam Elite was developed with a third-person perspective in mind. Adding an FPP mode will depend on several factors like moving camera angles and adjusting environments. They cannot simply add an FPP mode as it will break the core code and mechanics of the game. However, an FPP mode may be added in the future, but it is not going to be anytime soon. You can check out the steam discussion thread here.
