No. Tor can only handle the text-based ip-to-country database, but none
of Maxmind's databases. You can the database that Tor understands in
src/config/geoip in the sources:;f=src/config/geoip;h=31c721a9fe1d554e6a404b046eeaa4d83162f49b;hb=HEAD

Or do you want to use Maxmind's database for some reason? If so, you can
probably convert the text-based one (not .dat) easily.
