What you could do is listen to the event for customer save before customer_save_before, check to see if they are subscribing to the newsletter, If they are then you can update the group assigned to the customer and they will be saved into this new group.

The attribute for newsletter subscription is is_subscribed and you can call setCustomerGroupId on the customer object to update the group.
