Depending on the load you expect you could try the following line in 

smtps	stream	tcp	nowait	root	/usr/local/sbin/exim	exim -bs -tls-on-connect

other than this you have to write a second (custom) start/stop script to 
accomplish the task. Since SMTPS (SSMTP) is deprecated you should 
consider to use STARTTLS, which is natively support by exim and most 
decent MUAs.
