Maybe four mice could be enumerated via an Xtra if they were USB?
Dunno never needed to try it :)
I guess I mis-spoke... not that you cannot hook up more than one mouse, I'm
just not sure you can get Director to know about more than one. You'd
certainly need some Xtra, as there's no default way to do it - and I don't
know of any Xtra like that - I believe you'd have to find someone to write
something custom. Hopefully, someone will prove me wrong...

Actually, I'm afraid he'd need more than an Xtra. Since mouse event
notifications the OS (at least on windows) sends to apps does not include
device information, there is no way for an Xtra to know which mouse actually
performed the motion/click that triggered the event.
To have support for more than one mouse, the second mouse should be detected
as a mouse by the system, but as some other device.
Then, you'd need a driver for that device, and an Xtra that would be able to
communicate with the device.
Creating the Xtra shouldn't be hard... Finding such a driver though (or
a mouse with such a special driver)... well, long shot.

These guys seem to have done something like this (not in Director though).
This page in particular may offer some aid in your goal
