You can't currently.  This ought to be possible, but the work to make
it practical has not been done yet.

What you can do instead is write a Windows application
which uses the DLL, and run that with Wine.  You might,
for instance, run your Java program in a Windows version of
Java, and have that load the DLL.  Or you could write a miniapplication
that acts as a server, and have your Linux java program use that
