No, I don't think so ... although I have only OS 10.4.11 --- using the 
character palette (click on the "language flag" at the top left of the 
screen and click "Show Character Palette":

... and you'll be able to select Optima glyphs to see that it doesn't 
contain any small caps. I think fontspec.pdf has a variety of ways of 
'faking' small caps, no?

Hope that helps.
