Fairly sure. It isn't brought up as that anymore, and Outcast Dead gives the "Emperor is teh best of teh best of the
really strong psyker lords that took over Terra for a while in the Age of Strife." This isn't nessecarily canon for the Emperor's past because it's secondhand myth at best.
And since the Horus Heresy is being fluffed out but the Emperor hasn't given his word on it yet, anything is possible.
