If you mean what I think you mean then it isn't possible (well, not 

I presume you mean that you want to call into a WIN32 dll from a unix process, 
using Wine to help you.

(I think that we are all agreed that ) you can only call into a WIN32 dll 
using Wine if the main process IS wine.

If that meets your requirements then look into Winelib; basically your unix 
shared library will need to be wrapped to look like a WIN32 dll.
