No, unfortunately. This works through your iCloud account only.

It can work, but it's not very reliable at all. I have had success sometimes connecting my home PC and another device requiring Hotspot access... Neither were connected to my iCloud account. Anyway, I often find that I need to reset network settings to get other devices to find my iPhone to tether with.
