Yes. Go into System Preferences, select Sharing, then choose Internet Sharing. When you click on the dropdown next to "Share your connection from:" the VPN connections will be in the list as well as any physical or wireless connections. As an example everything in the list that starts with HMA is a VPN connection (I named them that way): enter image description here
