The simple answer is no. However, if you are looking to make some sort of game, you could use a library LibGDX which will port your code to iOS (as long as you have a mac).

And there is also Codename One which doesn't require a Mac (since we host them in the cloud).
For completeness sake libGDX uses RoboVM which is the actual underlying compiler. There are also XMLVM, J2ObjC & Avian.
