Actually, the answer to the original question is "no". It is not possible to
just link the Wine libraries directly into a Linux application - at least not
without additional work. A Winelib application (linked with winegcc) is
itself a library which is loaded by one of the Wine executables (there is a
patch to make Winelib applications into executables in their own right, but
the patch is out of date).
There are a number of mechanisms by which a Linux application might be able to
link directly to Wine libraries, but they all involve something more complex
than the example provided.
