If there were such a module / extension function for XPath / XSLT, I'd probably used it more often. If you find a Java library that is easy to interface with from Java-based XSLT processors, please let me know. I think that Levenshtein or more advanced algorithms will be too slow when implemented in XSLT, but may be readily available as an extension function.
See http://www.jenitennison.com/blog/node/11 for implementation of Levenshtein in XSLT 2.0, with a lot of interesting follow-up.
