I don't believe so--Dell sells the Optiplex floppy with a formed cable as a single unit. Here's a photo:
While the second floppy select probably exists on some pin in the support chipset, I don't think that Dell ever intended that more than one floppy would be used and so probably never wired the header for it.
I suppose one could install an IDE LS120 as a second drive or just plug in one of those brain-dead USB drives (I've seen a USB driver for DOS somewhere).
