No. Android is linux, .exe files are x86. It's a completely different architecture and won't even be recognised as an executable file.

Yep, although your results may vary. The one I know of, but haven't tried, is the QEMU app. Try a search in the play store, there's probably others.....

You might be able to get the effect you want by remoting onto a pc using the tablet and running the exe on the pc?

 

I would recommend Teamviewer :
