One thing that comes to mind is a program that invokes the command you
want on SIGHUP, installed as a service with cygrunsrv that will terminate
at shutdown, with HUP as the termination signal. Beware, though, that
services have a certain period of time in which to stop, after which the
service process will be terminated by Windows.
If I were you, I'd look into using the Windows hooks for this, instead.
