In a word, No.
The front shift lever only has 2 or three positions for double or triple chainrings. Not only aren't there enough clicks for a 9s RD, they're not spaced correctly either. Even if you had Campy shifters, with a non-indexed micro-ratchet front, and wanted to shift non-index you'd still be out of luck, since the increments are too course to use for friction shifting.
