Not at the moment. The HTTP proxy server would have to know how to speak the
SSH/sftp protocol to the remote server. I'm not aware of a proxy server
that knows how to do this.

I believe that you can use Dante (http://www.inet.no/dante/) to connect
to a SOCKS proxy server. You can setup your LD_PRELOAD environment variable
and then all of your applications will work through the proxy server
