The biggest obstacle to FileMaker talking directly to a SOAP service was
that filemaker couldn't POST before.

As of filemaker 13 you can use the httppost protocol in the "Insert from
URL" script step, so you ought to be able to post your XML at the SOAP
service and get its reply into a field.

Info here:

Chris is right that writing a PHP intermediary is probably the best way to
do this though, depending on what your requirements are.
