In brief: No
Hypovolemia is mostly from loss of volume that include body fluid, not drinking enough and haemorragic shock is from loss of blood volume loss.
You can say that haemorragic shock is a type of hypovolemic shock due to blood loss. Treatment of hypovolemic shock differ depending on etiology. If its due to fluid loss, fluid replacement is the treatment.
