No. The Butterworth filter has a frequency response that is a rational
function of finite order. Such a response can be realized by differential
equations, but not by difference equations.
The Buttterworth filter is a classic utilizing the capabilities of analog
electronic components. Attempting to approximate it digitally probably
isn't a particularly useful exercise: digital filters have different
capabilities and limitations.
