No. I shoot with smaller format camera systems using longer lenses when I want shallower DoF.

Longer lenses can help to isolate the subect, but they don't give you shallower DOF.  For the same subject magnification and aperture on the same format, a wide angle will give you the same approximate DOF as a super telephoto.  It's just that the background becomes magnified with the longer lens, giving the illusion of shallower DOF.  If you look at the sharp area in each photo, you will see that they are about the same.
