Not that I can think of.  If the the iPad has not power, then there is no way for it to receive any sort of signal to "make noise" and no power to make said noise.  You will just have to do it the old fashioned way.

 

For the future, there are little devices that you can buy that attached to things (such as keys or an iPad, etc) that are essentially little Bluetooth trackers.  If you loose the device, then you can use a Bluetooth pair iPhone to make the little device make noise (assuming they are with in Bluetooth range).

 

Here is an example of a Bluetooth option:

Here is an example of one with its own remote:

Note:  I have never used either product, so I don't know how well they work or what their real range is (as opposed to stated).  They are just examples of the options out there.
