Sorry for such a noobish question but is there such a thing as an OGL modeler that exports Opengl code rather than model files?

Why do you want to do that? You can write in few lines simple importer of OBJ files (there are also many classes for importing) and just pass OpenGL vertex/face list. I think it renders much faster than drawing face by face (if that is what 'Header exporter for OpenGL' exports)

In case you want to be able to deform the meshes in your program.

you can still deform a mesh in code no matter what the file format is. Once you have loaded in the data (vertices, indices, texture coordinates and so on) store them in vertex array or VBO and you can "deform" the vertices you have stored just by changing their values.
