Yes, with a slight tweak...

'-p' means pretty-print, i.e. produce a human-readable format.  mktag
supports the raw format.  So you should invoke it like this:

      $ git cat-file tag e619

which should produce something like:

   object c0ae36fee730f7034b1f76c1490fe6f46f7ecad5
   type commit
   tag tag-test
   tagger Anand Kumria <akum...@acm.org> 1351121552 +0100


and is the format expected by mktag.
