Place a shutter manually, open symbol and adjust.

If you need total control over the rails, stiles, and slats, you can use a thin roof plane with roof openings placed where desired.

If you want to use Eric's idea, you find the controls under the "open symbol" icon.  You would then rotate around the X axis with a negative number.

Using a Louvered Window as the basis for a custom symbol is simple too, if you want larger slats.

Open SYMBOL, not Open Object.

Place a window. Change its type to Louvered.

That's more involved. I used just the window sash after making some adjustments to sizing to make a symbol.

 

It's not difficult to do, but it would take a bit of effort to describe the process. Everything you need to know is available here on the forum, but it's scattered across multiple threads.
