Unfortunately, no.  /dev/lp? are character devices intended to talk to 
printers and printer-like devices only.  cqcam talks directly to the 
system's I/O ports and thus actually does require root permissions.
(Otherwise the ioperm() call fails.)

You could make the SUID binaries roughly equivalent, permissions-wise, to 
what you had above:
  chown root.qcam cqcam xcqcam
  chmod 4710 cqcam xcqcam
That's pretty much what I have on my system.
