NO. Why do you think one socket is called 2011 & the other is called 1366? They're different! Socket 2011 has 2011 pins, socket 1366 has 1366 pins.

Even if u manage to fit socket 1366 CPU with some kind of adapter into socket 2011 still it will not work because they use different technology.
Socket 2011 - use DMI
Socket 1366 - use QPI
