I'm needing to mount a directory using sshfs, but for that to work I need fuse.

When I run modprobe fuse i'm getting this:

FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-4-pve/modules.dep: No such file or directory

After some research apparently its because that the ProxMox VPS host does not support fuse in the kernel. Is there anyway I can get around this? I really don't want to use Samba, is there any other way of mounting a remote directory?

If it is not in the kernel (compiled in) and there is no loadable module available, then you are lost.

The only way to get this done is use a kernel with built-in fuse support or build your own kernel. But if that is possible depends on the environment you have.
