No. It uses an auxilliary file to do its job. The problem is that  
pdfsync.sty relies on the engine to be PDFTeX (or one of its  
derivatives) and, as far as I can tell, XeTeX is not really a  
derivative of PDFTeX and/or is not recognized as such...

Look at srcltx.sty for another way to perform synchronization  
(TeXniscope supports srcltx). As far as I can tell, it could work  
with XeTeX...
