No. They're two completely different formats which do different things. MIDI files are instrument/timeline based, and MP3 is a waveform based format.
You can't convert MP3s to MIDIs, unless you're musically trained and can do it by ear (slowly.)
However, you CAN convert MIDIs to MP3s. But there's no point, as the file just gets bigger.
Yeah, Leddy is right. MP3 is a digital sample - it sort of IS the music. MIDI is an interpretation of the music.
MP3 (and WAV etc) store samples of sound, so it is a recreation of the original.
MIDI is more of a description (a piano plays this note here, then a drum here, and then another note on the piano here).
MIDI can really be thought of as sheet music, whereas MP3 is the digital recording on CD.
Transcribing software does exist, but it's not very good at all. Maybe if you wanted to transcribe a solo piano song then maybe, but for a full song with intruments, drums, vocals? Nope!

That may be a pretty fair statement across the board.
