Is there any way I can make Thunderbird run an external program on receiving a mail with a particular string in it?

Untested and speculative; perhaps you could:

Use a message filter to direct such messages into (a) specific folder(s).

Then use

Mailbox Alert from Thunderbird Add-ons

to carry out your action(s).

What I don't know is whether the extension will work after a filter has intervened - but it seems to be implicit in the extension function.
