PXE needs to load from the BIOS, a USB WIFI card has no way to "insert" the PXE boot into the BIOS.
With some really hard work and finding the correct hardware/software combination you might get it to work, but there are so many restrictions and adjustsments to make, I'm betting it wouldn't work for you.
