Is it possible to fail a command task when a command or script fails within the command task?
No, not currently.  The workflow cannot directly access this task output data, Therefore you cannot directly fail the command task, but you can fail the corresponding workflow.

By default, the Data Integration Service continues to run subsequent objects in a workflow after a task fails. To stop running subsequent workflow objects after a task fails, use a conditional sequence flow that checks if the command task fails.  The command task returns an 'Is Successful' output containing true if the task ran successfully, or it contains false if the task failed. 

Create a boolean workflow variable that captures the 'Is Successful' output returned by the Command task. Then create an expression in the outgoing conditional sequence flow that checks if the variable value is false, below is an example variable:

$var:MappingTaskSuccessful = false

If the Command task fails, the expression evaluates to false and the Data Integration Service stops running any subsequent workflow objects.​
