Sort of.

What you need to do is, open Inkscape and import the jpeg image (file>import). Then, making sure you have the image selected, do Path>Trace Bitmap. Click the 'Colors' option and press OK. It might take a long time depending on how fast your computer is and how large the image is. Then delete the origional image you imported - it will be underneath the newly vectorised image.

What you'll have there is Inkscapes (usually pretty good) attempt at converting each colour section of the image into a vector. Try it out! Change the settings and see what happens :)

You also might like to try Vector Magic, an online bitmap to vector convertor. It can save the converted image as SVG for use in Inkscape. I find with many images Vector Magic does a better job than Inkscape and even commercial products.
