No, you cannot.

The custom tag is rendered based on the TLD file which holds its definition. Any attribute that you add which is not a part of the TLD for this tag [like the validate attribute you added in the example] will not be tolerated by struts, and an exception will be thrown at runtime.

Note that the same isn't true for some S2 tags, but the S1 tags haven't gotten dynamic attribute support as of yet.
