I just realized that there is no tool for this. However there is a way:
Look into the ~/.gnupg/sshcontrol file. There you find the keygrip of
all allowed ssh keys. Take that keygrip (actually a SHA-1 hash) and run
echo passwd 11223344556677889900 | gpg-connect-agent
The pinentry then pops up and asks for the old and the new passphrase.
You can use this command for any key stored by gpg-agent.
