No, Git by itself does not know anything about "Microsoft SCC API"
(partly because Git is not a Windows DLL but rather a bunch of
executable programs, with its development originated in the Linux
world).  But plain googleing for the relevant keywords [1] turns up
something which appears to be a commercial product providing a wrapper
for Git exposing this API.

Also, this [2] appears to be your post to some Adobe discussion board,
and from this post it appears you selected a wrong mailing list in
fact: this list is a support channel for Git newbies, and the main Git
list (dedicated to its development) is git at vger.kernel.org [3];
you might want to also ask your question there.

Note though that from what I gather from various Internet resources I
managed to google using the Microsoft+SCC+API query, it appears that
developing the support for that API requires signing an NDA with
Microsoft (!!!).  Putting aside the fact this requirement is brain-dead
in itself, I'm sure any support for this API won't be integrated
directly into Git until that restriction is lifted -- simply because
Git is a piece of free software.
