I don't think there will be a tool.
As I'm right there are a few types of databases:
Relational
Object
XML
Flat
So there are a few difficulties to build a converter.

java can do this job.
you create a DOMTree, serialize it and write the file to harddisk.
the source can be databse,textfile or something else.
the tutorial from IBM is very good, i`ve used the tutorial manipulating datas with xslt, i think, and the book Java & XML from Bret Mclaughlin.

Please don't shoot .. but .. Excel 2000 (or XP, one of the two) actually supports the exporting of Excel files as XML. Not the best solution in terms of compliance (will not conform to a DTD or schema) but works. Good luck.
