Yes. There are defines in the wp-settings.php file that can be defined 
in the wp-config.php file.


// Underneath database config info
define('CUSTOM_USER_TABLE', 'wp_users');
define('CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE', 'wp_usermeta');

In this way, you only need to have one wordpress users table and 
usermeta table. You will have to keep track of the prefix of the 
wordpress installation you have all of the users in.
