Nope. See http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/317850.html
(Which isn't entirely correct, since transparency in EPS files
is supported by FM. You have to remember to select the imported
EPS image, and set the Fill to None. The transparency will not
show up on-screen, but will show correctly in PostScript printouts
and generated PDFs.)

I think you have to create that effect in the image itself before
importing it into FM, unfortunately.
