No, Evolution uses plain HTTP.

Unless there are extensions I'm not aware of, that sounds like its going
to break.  If both User A and User B edit the calendar, they will race
to write the changes.  The second person to write will replace the first
person's changes.

Evolution doesn't support using webdav for interactive editing of
calendars.  I think you can sync a calendar remotely using webdav, or
use caldav.

Ah, their webdav custom interface doesn't involve downloading and
uploading entire ical files.  This would need support in Evolution, and
I've no idea if there has been any progress.
