Could a faulty alternator make a noise that sounds similar to a belt going around and around in a 2001 Mercedes C240?

It is possible but to correctly diagnoise a noise you have to hear it.

It can, though it is unlikely -- the alternator and the voltage regulator would both have to be faulty. A faulty alternator will not charge a battery, though, so it may seem normal until the charge put into the battery at the store runs out.
