That would be physically impossible.

A Dial up is physically a point-to-point link, and will not see traffic for 
any other node on the internet.

Promisc mode only applies to things like ethernet, where everything on the 
whole ethernet segment appears at your nic, but by default only packets 
that are broadcast to everyone, or addressed to your network card directly 
are paid attention to. Promisc mode makes the NIC receive everything, even 
if it's not addressed to your nic.

In the case of a dial-up other packets aren't even sent to you in the first 
place, so you don't have the option of ignoring them or not.
