No.

Stepper motors are special synchronous motors. Induction motors are asynchronous by nature: the slip is, what generates the torque.

If you try to use it in synchronous mode then no slip - no torque.

Also - zero speed - essentially zero torque. If this was in any way possible ti would have been done as Steppers are expensive. However - depending on the application a BLDC/PMAC motor is often used as a servo motor... in some application a stepper or BLDC can be considered.

If you have an application that can use an induction motor, then the Stepper was probably not the best original choice.
