Perhaps. Grover's Algorithm can be applied to almost any problem that looks like "solve f(x) = c", even if f calculates a hash. It's not an exponential speedup though, and I'm not sure how it deals with accepting a lot of different c's (as mining only requires k leading zeroes in the hash, not a single specific hash).
