No.  That is something proprietary.  IBM certainly doesn't want you to have any way to decrypt information that it considers important enough to encrypt.

Since this userid/password is the one in your database, then talk to your DB admin to find out what userid/password to be used.  However, if your DB admin has (for example), left the company without sharing this information with anyone before leaving, then your best bet might be to talk to the DB provider to find out if there is any way to "recover" from a "lost password" situation.

Sorry.

Good luck
