No. Unlike the FA Cup, only the winners are eligible for the Europa League.

There's another point. When the semi-pro Welsh league started, UEFA told the Welsh teams in the English setup that they had the choice of moving full-time into the Welsh setup or becoming ineligible for European qualification. That's why Cardiff and Swansea no longer get a Europa League place through the Welsh Cup as they used to. However, before Cardiff lost to Portsmouth in the FA Cup final a few years ago Platini indicated that UEFA might change its stance and allow them qualification through English competitions.
