No as Qt Creator can only use the shipped/customized clang binary for 
this. While this come with some advantages (performance in case tidy and 
clazy checks are requested, same lib interface), it does not permit 
switching versions that easily.

You would need to wait until we upgrade the shipped clang or compile Qt 
Creator against a more recent LLVM/Clang yourself.
