Iptables can not translate from one protocol to another.
The closest thing you could do is using something like redsocks. 
With iptables you can redirect packages based on their destination IP,
destination port, linux user account, and or process/session id.
Redsocks accepts them and can forward them to another http or socks proxy.
But what's the point? It's a real hack.
A clean solution would be to add http proxy support to Tor  or to add
socks support to the applications. Torsocks can be used as a hack.
