It is entirely possible for a person who lifts for power to be cut. Cut has absolutely nothing to do with how or what you lift, it has to do with bodyfat. If you lift as a powerlifter, but follow a strict, low-fat/low carbohydrate/maintinence calorie diet, you will still have low bodyfat and, thus, will be cut.
However, competitive powerlifters are most certainly not fat. They are exceedingly muscular, and recognize the simple fact that it's not necessary to have 10% body fat, that's purely a cosmetic concern and has nothing whatsoever to do with functional strength.
