Absolutely.

To place a marker at the end of a <path> such that the marker points in the
same direction as the tangent at the endpoint of the last segment of the
path, use the 'orient="auto" option on the <marker> element. For example:

<svg ... >
   <defs>
      <marker id="MyMarker" orient="auto" ....>
         <!-- Graphics definition for marker go here -->
      </marker>
   </defs>
   <path style="marker-end:url(#MyMarker)" d="..." ... />
</svg>

See section 11.5 of the SVG specification for more information.
