Yes it can.

Only Multitype and Wonder Guard cannot be Skill Swapped.

Source: Bulbapedia/ Skill Swap


Though how would that work? Trace would copy your ability then it would not be Trace anymore? Trace would have to fail, and it only fails on Zorua/Zoroark and Arceus. So because none of them can learn Skill swap so they would have to make Trace fail then switch to a Pokemon with Skill Swap.
I'm not exactly sure. I just answered it by using Bulbapedia. I don't see any in-game stategy.
