I'm sure an adapter could be made, but it would need to spread the image out over a larger area. It would be similar to a teleconverter, but it would preserve the entire image circle. To cover an FF sensor at 4x the area of m43, you'd need effectively a 2x teleconverter which would lose 2 stops of aperture. On top of that, you'd have lenses which would be too wide. 12-40 on m43 is a nice standard zoom. 12-40 on FF would be a UWA zoom. I doubt that sharpness could be adequately preserved doing something as extreme as this.
