In theory, maybe. See this link for supported data sources: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Supported-Data-Sources-and-Data-Types-cb69a30a-2225-451f-a9...

 

Since it supports Power Query, if you can connect to your Salesforce via Power Query with something like an OData feed or Salesforce Objects or Salesforce Reports, then maybe.

 

I say maybe because there are also supported authentication types buried in that link. 

 

The new Power BI Preview connects to Salesforce, there is a content pack for it so you might want to start looking down that route as my understanding is that everything is headed that way.

The Gatway is required to connect to on premise data sources. You should be able to connect to Salesforce without the Gateway.
