No, unfortunately.

I mean that Metz and Quantum make Leica-specific adapters which allow 
their own flash units to be used in TTL mode with the appropriate Leica 
models. Metz makes one that also works with the earlier Leica R 
cameras, but their 3502 adapter works with the R8 and M6TTL. I believe 
they also make an even newer one that works with the HSS mode on the R9 
and M7. Quantum's adapter works with the R8, R9, M6TTL and M7. It is 
compatible, of course, only with Quantum's T2 (and possibly X2) flash
