Answer is: NO

you can see the supported column types here and you cannot add other components:

In the future, you could add a custom cell template, which I believe will help with your requirement, so it will be possible - look here and see that lightning:dataTable (custom cell templates) is planned for spring 19 (which is next release)

  • Does anybody know if this feature was released in Spring '19? I couldn't find any documentation for this. Commented Feb 15, 2019 at 0:29
