No, lookup  field can only be field  on a physical field of a list

It is not easy in this release.

With some JavaScript you can simulate a filtered dropdown list. Check out

One caveat to this approach. The list the lookup  column is based upon must
reside within the same SharePoint site. :(

I'm still looking for a better approach. If you have ideas, I'm eager to
hear them.
