Nope.

Generally, AF cannot function properly with linear polarisers and, therefore, circular polarisers are required for most AF bodies.

Quoting Galdor in this thread:

Circular Polarizer and Moose Filters - Essential for outdoor photography; deepens intensity of blue skies; reduces or eliminates glare. Circular Polarizing filters are used on auto focus cameras.

Linear Polarizer Filters and Linear Focus - Used on non-auto focus cameras.
