No. There is no way (that is said in the documentation) to do so. But what you can do is in newer versions that you install with NSIS is add the following code:
Section "Newer Version"
Or you could just run the uninstaller before installing a new version, but that would leave more responsibility on the installer. Or just overwrite with the new program by adding the tag:
