Not out of the box, but you can download an app that does it:

The Phone app takes you to your history, the keypad is directly linked there, but out of the box, there is no direct link to the keypad.

Due to the sync of Phone numbers in Outlook/Exchange, Facebook or other SNS-providers the keypad is less and less used. I only use it if I have a new number that I don't have in my contacts...

RapDialer looks like the job, and some nice extra features. Playing with the free version will update to paid if it continues to work fine.
