No you don't wanna do that. The reason you cannot have your datafiles in a remote server is that, what if the network is down, where will the sql server write to? So there is no way you should do that. Besides I'm not even sure the SQL Server will allow you to create a device on a mapped drive. So the answer to your question is NO, you cannot do it.
