Not right now. There is no access control built into Hive at this time. owner information is there right now so that some external tool can use that information.

Subject: Limit deletion of tables by username
I'm trying to limit the deletion or modification of hive tables by username.
I noticed the table TBLS has the owner field and gets set to the username who created it.
BL_ID | CREATE_TIME | DB_ID | LAST_ACCESS_TIME | OWNER | RETENTION | SD_ID | TBL_NAME
Is it possible to do this? Basically I don't want someone else to do a "Drop table TABLE_NAME"
Thanks in Advance,
