No. That's not what HPC is all about.

Is it possible maybe with some other distribution ? Connecting few machines to work as one ?

Sort of, but you won't gain anything since your application is single-threaded. If your application forks multiple processes that work independently, then you could use something like Kerrighed to merge multiple machines into one big virtual SMP machine. But if SMP doesn't help you, then Kerrighed certainly won't either.
