Yes, do you have Active Directory Recycle Bin enabled?

Restoring an object with AD recycle bin - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd379509(v=WS.10).aspx

If AD recycle bin isn't enabled, it is highly recommend that you enable it - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd379481(v=ws.10).aspx

If it isn't enabled, you can still restore the object utilizing third party tools, as long as the item wasn't deleted past the tombstone lifetime (probably 180 days).

Dell, AKA Quest has a tool you can use to restore the object via free trial - http://software.dell.com/products/recovery-manager-for-active-directory/

If AD recycle bin is not enabled right now and if you enable it, it won't restore already deleted object for you.
It will work only if object get deleted after you enabled Recycle bin

You may use AdRestore v1.1

However it will not restore all AD attribiutes
