No. Guests can send out packets from their interface using any IP address they want. By convention it's normally set up so that guests get an IP address from a DHCP server, but that's only a convention, not required. Imagine rephrasing the question as "Can I get the IP address of each machine on my LAN?".

Actually, if I'd thought about that a bit more, I might have said: look in your local ARP table, and compare the MAC addresses with the ones in the libvirt domain XML.

It's still true to say that there isn't necessarily a fixed 1-1 relationship between guests' network cards and IP addresses.
