Most probably not.
The only way it might work is if you get some sort of megaswitch that cuts off all EMG signals (even the battery) when engaging the SS and vice-versa, otherwise both pickups will sound bad.

I think there's quite some posts here discussing the mixing of active and passive pups, do a search.
