Git provides no C API, if that's what you mean. You can link with
libgit.a, but there's no guarantee it won't break someday. At a higher
"API" level such as shell scripting, still "no", but I think you could
modify "git ls-files" to support running 'ls-files -i' without a git
repository (like git-grep --no-index). I think it'll work, mostly, but
not entirely sure.
