If I understand what you are asking then the answer is no there is no way to do that.
there is no correlation between the 2 addresses, you get assigned and IPv4 address from
you DHCP server or ISP or where ever, which has nothing to do with you IPv6 address,
you would get assigned that from another DHCP serve (that uses IPv6) or you ISP ( if they use IPv6)

hope this helps
