No, these cards use different glue logic and share components (like memory and video) with the Mac logic board. The BeOS supports a limited subset of the entire PC universe, and these cards do not "look" enough like the PCs with which the BeOS is compatible to run on them.

Nor, for a variety of reasons, is it one of our design goals for the BeOS to run on these cards. They will probably never work with the BeOS.
