I'm afraid not, this is the maximum currently for ESXi 3.5/4.1 and 5.0 as defined in the Maximums Document.

Configuration Maximums for VMware vSphere 4.1

Configuration Maximums for VMware vSphere 5.0

You could try "merging LUNs" or making larger LUNs.

Merging LUNs, is a manual function for most, ON your SAN, it's not an VMware function.

e.g. creating a larger lun on your SAN, and storage vMotion from two smaller LUNs.

then remove the two smaller LUNs.
