Unfortunately no, not with standard Subversion. It stores a commit
time, but not timestamps for individual files. So if you want this
badly enough, you would have to commit each file separately, in
chronological order, and then change the svn:date property of each
revision after the fact to match each file's mtime.

There was once a text-time branch which implemented this but it has
gone stale. However the ticket for this issue includes a refreshed
patch of that branch which is only a month old that you may be able
to use:
