She will have to live in the UK for around three years, successfully naturalise as a
British citizen, and then apply before she is entitled to a British passport. It's
not as simple as you imply. One has to fulfill the residency requirements in the UK
first. The same is true if you wanted to obtain a US passport.
It would probably work out something like this: enter UK on a spouse visa (must get
this before entering the UK), apply for ILR 1 year (or perhaps 6 months) later, apply
to become a Brtish citizen (could take as long as 18 months last time I read about
the process) and then apply for a British passport.
The pages here will explain the process
