No, the filesystem does not record the date an item was added.

If the file was originally created on your HD, then the Created date would be the date added. If it was copied from elsewhere, then the Modified date would be the date added, at least until it was modified again. Otherwise, there's no way to tell.

If you're using Time Machine, you might be able to get a rough idea of when it first appeared.
