No, it is not possible to interpret it in that way.
>From Bochan_bird's RCB:
The First Children, and dedicated pilot of Eva-00. A young girl who
apparently lacks emotions. Her body was created from the *salvaged
remains* of Yui Ikari *after* Yui was taken into the Eva, and numerous
Rei clones were then prepared in Terminal Dogma so that when one Rei
dies she can be replaced by another. The present Rei is the third. The
first was killed by Dr. Naoko Akagi, and the second died in battle
against the 16th Angel. Although the personalities of these three Rei
differ from one another, this is due to environmental factors. Their
soul is one and the same, and it appears to have been that of Lilith.
At the final stage of the Instrumentality Project, Rei betrayed Gendou,
returned to Lilith of her own judgment and entrusted the future to
Gendou's son -- Shinji Ikari. Birth date: unknown
