In brief: It's possible . . .

By definition, megalomania is a delusional disorder -- meaning it consists of fixed false beliefs that don't change on confrontation with reality.
So while you may be dimly aware that you are a simple human without omnipotence, these beliefs will be tough to dislodge. You will likely have unlimited, unconscious rationalizations that keep these beliefs intact no matter what.
