This is not possible. You can use OWA on the mobile device and view the shared mailbox that way if you choose. If its a normal shared mailbox the user AD object associated the shared will be disabled anyway, so you can't add it. Also the mobile device mail client doesn't function like an outlook client where you can see both mailboxes. If the shared mailbox AD object isn't disabled then you can add the mailbox to the mobile device like any other mailbox.

You can configure the Shared mailbox as as IMAP account in iPhone.

Use the shared mailbox name in the email and username and password as user who has full rights on the shared mailbox. I have attched a screen shot for your reference.

Also a MS article for IMAP configuration.

Or you can give a password to the shared mailbox by the "reset password" in Active Users then Add that Shared mailbox in your iphone as a regular exchange user.
