I just answered a very similar question, so I will paste that reply for the sake of convenience:
Excellent question. YES... but there is a caveat. Connecting the Icicle to the iPad via the USB camera connector won't provide enough power and you will get a warning about how "the device uses too much power," and the iPad will ignore it.
HOWEVER, if you 1) connect the Icicle to a powered USB hub, and then 2) connect the hub's USB to the USB camera connector, you will be able to use an XLR mic connected to the Icicle - even ones that require phantom power.

No. The Camera Connector ONLY downloads photos. It doesn't do anything else nor does it support any other kind of peripheral.
