Not without a product like Crossover or Darwine. There is no native port of Steam for OS X, nor has the Source engine (the back-end of HL2) been ported.
Products like Crossover and Darwine provide a translation layer so that software designed to use Windows APIs can run on another OS. It's not fool-proof, however, and many products don't work.
More information here.

Interesting post. My neighbor finally bugged me enough to play some games so I finally loaded Boot Camp after two years of just using Fusion on occasion. We are using Steam in Windows and my new MBP 17" can play pretty much any game. I have never gamed on a laptop and it has been pretty cool. If your Mac has the goods - Steam and Boot Camp can definitely play well together. I wouldn't hold your breath though for a native Steam app.
