Yes, configure your DAD with

PlsqlErrorStyle DebugStyle

parameter (in dads.conf, restart of OHS is required for this change to take effect.) With this parameter in place, mod_plsql will output detailed debugging printout if it encounters an unhandled exception anywhere in the request processing pipeline. In particular, you will see missing arguments, exceptions thrown in your procedure, etc. Default for PlsqlErrorStyle is ModplsqlStyle, which forces 404 reply whenever mod_plsql encounters an exception while processing the request. If you don't have this parameter in your DAD section, simply add it.
