Yes it can. The 6-30 will be fed with a #10 wire whereas the 6-15 only needs a #14 conductor. You will also have to change the cap (plug) end also as the polarity of the two receptacles is different. This difference in cap polarity is so that a 6-15 can not be inserted into a 6-30 receptacle. The tandem blade configuration on the 6-30 are closer together than the tandem blades on the 6-15 receptacle.
