Not on a Squire no matter what. I'm sure you could get somewhat of a close tone with the right settings, but not exactly the right one.

It depends how high they go. If they play stuff on the high e and you have a 6 string tuned down to BEADGB then you're not going to be able to play 100% exactly what they play, but you can always change your fretting as long as it follows the original song.

If you're going for that song, and most of DT's heavier songs you really should invest in a 7 string. They have a higher string tension as well as the low sound. Tuning down does replicate a 7 string to an extent, but the strings are extra floppy as well.
