No. DreamHost doesn't offer control over the FTP service or file ownership. You will need to use a CGI file manager web application. Beware that by default PHP has an upload limit of 7 MB.
If standard UNIX permissions and user groups doesn't offer what you want, the CGI application can run as a certain user and copy files from the home directories of other users into its own home directory into a web directory.
