I don't think so. Female Explorers cannot earn rank, and First Class
is a preferred requirement to be a Den Chief.
The Cub Scout Leader book says it can be an "older Boy Scout, Varsity
Scout or Explorer (formerly a Boy Scout). Preferably a former Cub
Scout, ideally at least First Class Rank."
Since an Explorer should formerly be a Boy Scout, a female Explorer
could not qualify.
There was at one time an unregistered position of Den Aide. This was
for a teenage female, likely an older sister or daughter of the Den
Leader. Her duties were much the same as the Den Chief.
