Theoretically yes, as of GDAL 2.1

there is potential to use rgdal or gdalUtils as noted in this older thread

I'm haven't seen a simple working example yet though.

Of course the other way to got about this is to generate a Leaflet
(There are at least 2 R packages) map with the WMTS plugin and then view
your map in the browser.

Anyone else have working examples?
