No. The first paragraph under the subtitle "Layout style" within
http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ explains not only that this isn't
possible but also why it can't be an added feature.

If you're desperate to preserve a laboriously contrived layout -- and I
know I sometimes am -- then here is a (probably more laborious)
workaround. Ignore Tidy's standard output and instead read its
error/warning file (the file you specify after the "-f" switch), making
your own corrections to the original file as appropriate.
