My initial reaction was "absolutely not". The lighting circuit will only have a maximum feed capacity of 3 to 5 amps. For a garage opener this will be more than that. If you did manage to convert it, then you would almost certainly blow the circuit breaker and at the worst you may cause the wiring to set on fire due to overload. Basically, it's all about the maximum current that the opener draws when operating. I'm sure that it would exceed the capacity of the circuit. Additional question...I saw something at Home Depot that screws into a light socket and provides an electrical outlet. Would this work? I did a little research and found garage door openers ranging from 1.6 to 6 amps. Seems a little tight, but could it work?

Can a garage door opener be attached to any roll up garage door?

The door assembly must be able to accommodate the apparatus of the garage door opener. Many older homes require a replacement garage door before an opener can be installed. You must also have clearance between the rolled up door and the ceiling to accommodate the door opener motor.
