Currently, I can press the mute button on my keyboard, making my sound turn off. Is it possible to do this through cmd.exe so that I can run it with other things I have in that program?

It isn't possible to mute it directly through the command line, no. But you could use a command line utility such as NirCmd to achieve the same functionality. Simply running nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 1 from cmd would mute the audio. E.g. you could easily do this through a batch script, if you're trying to do several things at once.
