No.  A hold placed with dpkg and one placed with aptitude are not the same
thing and are not stored in the same place.

Under certain circumstances not clearly defined, aptitude will import the
real status database information, but I have no idea if the process ever
goes the other way.

Yet another reason to never use aptitude.
