Sitecore is build on .NET so probably won't be able to use CMIS2.0.
Does Sitecore have any APIs such as web service interface?

Like Hitoshi already mentioned Sitecore seems to be built on .NET platform and Liferay on Java so depending on how you want to integrate them you might need to create some custom portlets that use remote APIs Sitecore provides or your could build a app (with .NET or Java) that use both Sitecore and Liferay apis to synchronize content between those apps. If Sitecore happens to support WSRP then your job got a bit easier because you could consume those with the WSRP portlet in Liferay.

Integrating a CMS with a Portal can take on many different forms:

1. Consumer logs into portal and consumes content from CMS
2. Consumer views CMS driven website and consumes content from Portal
3. Editor logs into Portal and contributes content to CMS via portal
4. #1 or #2 for Assets instead of for HTML Content

If you are talking about #1, Sitecore doesn't support WSRP. However, the content can be exposed via a web service, though, so you can create a portlet that pulls in the content. You could also do something even simpler if you don't require passing of any authentication like a Sitecore template that outputs the HTML as the portal expects and a Screen Scraping portlet.

If you are talking about #2, you could use any tool that consumes WSRP from within .NET (like this: http://www.netunitysoftware.com/Portal.aspx). You could also wrap some .NET around some Java using some .NET to Java Bridge: http://jni4net.sourceforge.net/

If you are talking about #3, it will likely be more effort that it is worth and not really recommended.

#4 follows #1 and #2, however, it will likely be easier to use an HTTP proxy for the asset to expose it.

Good luck!
