On second thought, it may be possible on that 4th axis after all, but it will require the cutting tool and the gear axis to be skew to each other.  (I'm not sure what the right term for that is.)

Just for fun, a 45 degree chevron bevel gear section - these really want to be 3-D printed, if anything.
