No, it is not possible to cancel it.
Non-immigrant forms, including the green I-94W for the visa waiver, have a
question "Has an immigrant petition EVER been filed for you?"
Of course, it is not impossible to get a non-immigrant visa or be admitted on
visa waiver once an I-140 has been filed for a person. You "just" have to
convince the officers that you don't have immigration intent anymore, e.g.,
through ties to your home country, etc.
