I don't think so; one is a voltage-level interface, the other is more
like current-loop. (ICBW, of course.)

However, if "with a proper connector" is taken sufficiently liberally,
the answer is "yes"; there exist interfaces that are built into DA15
shells - you plug the DA15M it into your joystick port, and it breaks
things out into three connectors: a DA15F for the joystick (if any) and
two MIDI connectors for, well, MIDI. Mine cost me CAD 34.45, TTC,
around the middle of last August.
