Based on a quick test, no it will not work with a simple hyperlink. You
would need a script that would start ArcMap and then open the mxd. Of
course I am not a programmer so there may be other options.

Subject: shrug-l: Launch an MXD from a web link
Here is a puzzle for a Friday afternoon...
I have an MXD on a network drive my coworkers share. Is it possible to
put a hyperlink in an intranet web page that will allow said coworkers
to launch the MXD on their desktop, assuming they have ArcMap installed?
Thanks and have a good weekend.
