If you can find or modify a C compiler that will compile to 6502 code and allow
you enough control over cycle counts, timing, memory locations, and so on, then
theoretically yes.  But other than that, nope, and all of us here on the list use
6502 assembler.

Remember you can use assembler macros for many common operations, an example
being a common one-instruction if/then case.  That'll take a little of the tedium
out of assembler.
