Yes, it is possible! Simply make the Phone field the second field in the Account object's Search Results layout.

This can be done from: Object Settings > Account > Search Layouts > Search Results > Edit

When performing a full search, the results returned are records whose 'Names' or secondary fields (ie. the second field in the Search Results layout) match your search query.
