Yes.  Look for a Sun 130-3034 (13W3-M/HD15-F) adapter, which will plug in
to the 13W3 connector on the frame buffer and can be used with a VGA cable.
Note, that not all VGA cables have pin 9 connected, which is required for
powering the monitor EEPROM.  Without this, the FFB driver might not be able
to retrieve EDID information from the monitor.  (Some 13W3/HD15 adapters
don't connect this pin either, but the 130-3034 adapters that I have do.
