No, HAProxy is not a web server and cannot act like one. From the HAProxy Starter Guide, What HAProxy is and is not:


HAProxy is not a web server:

During startup, it isolates itself inside a chroot jail and drops its privileges, so that it will not perform any single file-system
access once started. As such it cannot be turned into a web server. There
are excellent open-source software for this such as Apache or Nginx, and
HAProxy can be installed in front of them to provide load balancing and
high availability.
