In brief: Yes
Although uncommon, it has been documented that the stimulation a woman receives to the nipple/areola complex can be sexually arousing.
As far as orgasm, that depends very much on the individual. There are not a significant number of women who achieve orgasm with breast stimulation alone. Most women require some degree of direct or indirect clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm.
