I think so.

If I remember correctly, you have to tinker with the Sound control panel 
under Inputs.  I think if you wire the tape player out to the microphone in 
of the Mac and then if you set the Inputs in the Sound control panel to 
Built-in and then select "Sound In,"  that would do the trick.  *I think.*

It's been a little while since I've done something like that.
