I have not seen any one try to answer this ... 
I imagine the preferred way to do this now is with the 'event handling'

<action-spec> = <action>|<type>|<var-spec>
If action is 'S' (for "shell command"), then action-spec is a shell command
to be executed (if result is 1).

You would have to figure out how to make the DTMF command constitute an
It could be you have to go into the asterisk "dialplan" and use that part of
things to set a variable.

exten => 1234,5,rpt(2000,V,MYVAR=0)

When the variable went true, courtesy of the asterisk dial plan, then rpt
would run your shell script.
