    No...

    You might be able to do this with a jailbroken device, but I've never heard of anyone doing so. It will not work with a standard device.

    Part of the problem is that the 'USB port' of the iPad has a very limited current drive capability of about 10 mA and most all modems require considerably more current than this.
