Not that I know of, at least outside of any specialized DX publications.  However, here is a list of the words most usually heard:

A = America
B = Boston
C = Canada
D = Denmark
E = Ecuador
F = France
G = Germany (some do use Guatemala)
H = Honolulu (some do use Hawai'i)
I = Italy
J = Japan
K = Kilowatt (some do use Kansas)
L = London
M = Mexico
N = Norway
O = Ontario or Ohio
P = Panama 
Q = Quebec
R = Russia
S = Spain
T = Tokyo
U = United
V = Venezuela
W = Washington
X = X-ray
Y = Yokohama
Z = Zanzibar

There are a few other geographic names that are heard.  But, those listed are, by far, the most common.  Of course, there are a couple in the list that are not geographic names.  But, for the most part, the "DX phonetic alphabet" consists of cities, states, or countries.
