No, because the "e-passport", like any complex RFID device, is driven by an "h-field" interrogator.
This requires a reactive magnetic field, like the sort produced by the interrogator device, and only works in the near field.
Wi-fi uses radio, which involves propagating waves. Radio type RFID is called "e-field" technology (somewhat sloppily but it's tradition). However,
that requires the ability to receive back-scatter modulation which your Wi-Fi can't do either.
So, in short, Wi-Fi boxes can't send to nor receive from any type of RFID, but most especially not the sort used in e-passports.
