My sister attended MIT as an undergraduate and was thinking of writing a letter of support on my behalf to help my chances off of the waitlist. Any thoughts on whether a family letter of recommendation is acceptable or whether it would be harmful?

I'm no admissions expert, buy IMO it kind-of hurts your chances. It says to the committee: "I have no one else except my sister to recommend my good work".
