IMHO, Nope. And anybody who sells you one claiming it does is selling snake oil.
Well developed VP's can do an excellent job of properly de-interlacing and scaling a 480i signal, perhaps even with some good noise reduction and color/contrast correction and improvements, but a 1080p image has roughly SIX times the number of pixels compared to a 480i image so the data is not there to begin with. It's all about giving you the best picture possible so a scaled SD signal might be improved and look good but it won't look as good as HD.
