Not really. OTR uses DHKEA for symmetric key negotiation. This is an interactive protocol: you send some information, the other person sends some information back, back-and-forth a few times until a symmetric key emerges from the mathemagic.
Email is not an interactive protocol. You could probably invent a way to do OTR via email, but it would probably be a horrible kludge.
