No. That won't work. At least it would not be straight forward at all. The reason is that installing drivers alters the registry hives loaded in memory (when done from Windows), and the Windows registry and the Wine registry are formatted differently. If not for this, I think it technically could be possible if you configured your wine directories to clobber your windows directories. Still this would be a very bad and dangerous idea.

The short answer, again, no.
