i'm not too sure i understand what you mean by "chain dependencies
together". In ant, a target can depend on more than one other targets
(just pass a comma separated list) and ant handles generating the graph
of dependent targets for you (so if target c depends on target b which
depends on target a... etc). All of this is explained on the target page
in the section "Using Ant" of the manual.

Ant is not a scripting language... assuming that "run script four" is a
target in your build file, you could call it from within another target
using the <antcall> task. You should also look into the AntContrib third
party tasks, since they have an "if" task.

Maybe if you gave us some more info on what you're trying to achieve?
