No.

A cellphone is basically a computer controlled radio.

The sim reader only allows the PC to read the computer data.

There is nothing in the computer itself that will generate the proper Radio signals to allow it to act as a cellphone.

Besides the fact that cellphones are so cheap, its kinda like asking;
"My lawn mower is broke, can I attach the blade to my Lincoln to mow the lawn?"
