Not that I know of. There was a program in Express Tools for R14 from Autodesk which may be incorporated in 2004, but I wouldn't bet on it.

If you ever find plt2dwg.lsp you'll have it.

If you ever find one let me know, you are not the first to ask, there are about 200 people in line ahead of you.

AutoCAD Versions since 2000i come with the plt2dwg.lsp.  But the lisp file does not work with all plot files.

There are a few more conversion programs, but Paramveer did not say shareware, just freeware.

The following are all shareware programs that claim to do what he asks, but I haven't tested any of them so I wouldn't know.
