It can already be done by adding a rmodifier like this one:

/rmodifier add server history_add,input_text_display 1,4*,5 ^(/(server|connect) .*-(sasl_)?password=)(\S+)(.*)

I added this one in default rmodifiers.

Note: due to limitation of rmodifiers, this rmodifier will replace only one password in command line (if you give many passwords, only the latest will be hidden).

When you send the message identify password to nickserv, weechat replaces your password with asterisks. Would it be possible/desirable to have the same behavior on the command connect? Such that:

/connect freenode -password=my_secret_password would change to
/connect freenode -password=*****

And also for -sasl_password=my_secret_password.
