3M has a product called Cold Shrink tubing.  It is designed to seal high voltage, etc cables in buried installations.  It is a silicone (?) rubber stretched over a collapsable polyethylene core.  You run the cable through the core and pull on a tab which unwinds the core and the stretched silicone collapses and forms a water tight seal.

I have not used it to seal cables, but have used to replace polyurethane coatings on printer platens (Tek TDR thermal printers and HP9100 calculator electrostatic printers) that have turned to goo.
