No,you can not. Cream of tartar is an acid salt where as baking soda is one of the few foodstuffs that it completely alkaline (complete base- no acid).

So as you can tell, it would be the worst thing to replace it with.

Bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar mixed gives 'baking powder'. It is a leavening agent, used to makes cakes rise. To make baking powder, the ratio is 1:3 parts bicarb to cream of tartar. For a 3 egg sponge cake that is not aerated in any other way, 2-3 teaspoons of baking powder should be enough (assuming plain flour, not self-raising flour).
