You might be able to reconstruct individual games to play, but you'd need to modify the emulator to support a multicart mapper, just as emulators needed modified for Super Street Fighter II and anything else over 32 Mbit.

Not as a multicart, unless you modify the emulator yourself. You should be able to take the 4MB dump and split it into a series of two 2MB, two 1MB, four 512KB, eight 256KB, and sixteen 128KB images, which hopefully will play as the individual games separately.

The modification in question is probably more along the lines of adding additional functionality to the emulator. How to do this depends on which emulator, what language it's written in, how much you know about writing software, and whether or not the emulator in question has source available.
