In brief: Yes but weak

Tamoxifen is a very weak estrogen receptor agonist.
It is frequently used to help treat breast cancer by binding to the receptors that are normally binding Estradiol (a very potent estrogen receptor agonist). If the tamoxifen gets to the receptor first, then it blocks the estradiol.
