Since any computable expression can be written in the lambda calculus, then theoretically yes. You probably wouldn't want to; you would probably attempt it using one of the syntactically sugared implementations of the typed lambda calculus.
Whilst it's difficult to be absolutely certain, I think 'no' is a reasonably safe answer. I'd be very happy to be proved wrong in this.
