Short answer No.

Longer answer is that many XSL products allow the input stream to come
from any SAX complaint parser. So if you write a parser for that file
format that emits SAX events you could probably use that as input
to an XSL transformation. (MK in his book gives an example of this for
GEDCOM files from family history programs) However this is tantamount to
writing a converter from that file format to XML, so you can't really
convert that file to XML using XSL, but you might be able to process it
as if it were XML once you have a suitable parser.
