If you configure sudo to allow them to use smitty they will be able to do everything that they can do today, even shell escape to a root shell through esc+9 keys. 
To only allow them to change the size of a filesystem you can configure the command /usr/sbin/chfs on their sudo profile. With this command they will be manually extend a filesystem as following:

sudo chfs -a size=+1G /filesystem

-to increase the /filesystem in 1 Gb

Best regards,
