In Adobe Illustrator, you can apply a gradient across a stroke to make an effect like in the screenshot of Illustrator below. Is there a way to do the same in Animate?

You can come close in Animate to this effect. You can try converting it to a Movie Clip and using a bevel filter or gradient glow, or fill each line segment with a gradient that has 2 colors, same value but one color at 0% alpha. Then adjust the gradient accordingly for each stroke...not perfect but might be good enough or you can spend more time than I did and get it even closer...

no, the static drawing tools in animate are more limited than they are in illustrator.

If you first convert lines to fill, then you can apply a gradient across a stroke, (but then you can't treat it as a stroke anymore).
