Yes. It is incredibly difficult.

A .dll calls the lowest-level system hooks in the operating system.

A program to convert Windows dlls to Mac programs would have to do this:

1. Decompile the dll and process what it is doing. There are entire programs dedicated to just this.
2. Map the commands of the decompiled dll to their Mac equivalents. Since there isn't a 1:1 mapping of functionality between Windows and Mac, this step is also very challenging.
3. Build this new command set into a Mac-compatible binary. (This step is pretty easy.)
