Apparently there was some version of vmware or some other virtualization app(possibly upcoming) that supported OS X guest if the host was OS X as well but that does not help you if you are using PPC.
Really, unless I am mistaken(I possibly might be)your answer is basically no... Unless you want to write an extremely awesome emulator. You would not want to run it in an emulator even on the fastest G5 anyway.
I fear that since the last G5 was made 4 years ago, they will not do Snow Leopard for PPC... Once can hope, but my hopes are that if they do not, they will continue to work on 10.5 for a while longer before they abandon that too...
Thing is, there isn't much point in installing SL on a PPC. There are not many extra features (really not many at all), the main difference is that the code has been optimised for Intel CPUs. Apple could probably recompile it for PPCs as is, but they would likely end up with slower version of Leopard for all intents and purposes.
Having said all that, I would love to get some of the new Wake on LAN features from Snow Leopard running on a Mac using Leopard. I only hope Apple will open source that bit so it can be compiled for PPC Macs. Not holding my breath though.

Snow leopard is a slimmed down version of leopard with some killer goodies. It only has x64 coding.
You could slim down leopard to only support PPC coding and find some 3rd party apps to get some what of the same options as snow leopard but by time you get all of that done PPC would be completely be obsolete.
I made a website about this, its a project i've been working on between my IMac G5 and a MacBook Pro. Its really in sum, just snow leopard ported to work on a PPC Mac. i'm not done yet but you can get instructions for how to it to the point where i am at my website http://SnowPPCLeopardx.yolasite.com/ if you think you can help me go to the about page on the site
