nope, they usually don't have the ferromagnetic qualites you need for pickups to work

edit: nickel .vs. bronze

I believe the unwound strings are nickel still. Bronze is used for the windings not the core. Either way, I'd just buy a single E string from the music store at the proper gauge and go with that.
Moving on.....

if you use Rotosound strings they give you an extra high E

IDK, I've used acoustic strings before with no problems at all. As long as it ain't nylon strings I assumed they'd work, lol. I actually think I have done it a few times now.

i've done it before, the sound is not optimal, but it works. the only problem i see for you if the difference in tension. i think an acoustic's regular set high E is usually an 0.12, compared to the regular tension sets of electrics which is an 0.10. your fingers will have to get used to the tension, especially if you play with light strings like 0.09s or 0.10s.
