No. Only a pawn may "turn into a queen." The proper terminology for when a pawn reaches the other side of the board is "promoting." The pawn is promoted to queen or to any other piece you wish to choose. There is a well known game where one player's pawn reached the other side, but due to the unique placement of the remaining pieces on the board, if the pawn were promoted to queen, the game would have ended in an immediate stalemate. So the player chose to promote the pawn to a knight, which, again due to the unique placement of the pieces, immediately checkmated the enemy king.

Now, if you prefer to say "turn into a queen", then by all means exercise your freedom of speech and say it that way. Chess is, after all, just a game.
