You could script something so that a computer added to the DHCP pool
gets added to the iptables rules, but can you actually achieve what you

Are you simply blocking the client's access to the DHCP server (gateway
on it)?  That's easy enough to block via an IP rule.

Are you trying to block the client to anything, in which case your
gateway must actually be *between* the client and other things (merely
being on the same network isn't enough).  Otherwise, the gateway can
simply be bypassed.

And if a user manually assigns themselves the same IP, coincidentally,
should it be allowed or blocked?  Do you just care about the address, or
do you need a DHCP client acknowledge?

It sounds more like you need some sort of authentication system, rather
than just IP assignment.
