I dont think you can do this with vrops as it does not have a reference database for when new patches are released. The only thing i can think of is skyline with vrops integration but i have not integrated vrops with skyline yet.

What you can do is create a view with a filter of ESXi hosts that are not on the latest build of those versions used in your environment  (for example 6.0, 6.5 and 6.7). This will display all the ESXi hosts which are not on the latest build and thus missing updates. The downside is that you need to update the view manually each time a new build is released.
