I do not believe so. Once you've used an Apple ID to make app purchases, that is the Apple ID you will have to use to keep those apps updated. They don't transfer to other Apple IDs. It's one of Apple's ways of ensuring apps aren't being used or given to anyone willy nilly.

You can always get with Apple to see if their policy has changed,mor if they will change it for you, but I've not heard of anyone being successful in getting apps moved to a new ID. Sorry.
