I'm afraid this isn't possible. You can only autolocalize into the same type (although you can set the short to be letters at least)... so short to short, or long to long. You could do a search and replace operation, but it may be a tortuous process. So you can convert the short date to be a short date with letters like this:
You could then export your translation with the transposed short dates to MS Word using the SDLXLIFF Converter for Microsoft Office and then use a Word regex search and replace to manipulate the dates. There is information on this here: http://goo.gl/1QTG9
So a bit of a workaround but possible. It may also be that some of the users on ProZ will have a better workaround as I've seen some clever stuff in the past for things like this.
Maybe this gives you a few ideas anyway.
