No, I don't believe that is possible.  Each port/IP combination must be
dedicated either to HTTP or HTTPS, since the connections for the two types
of protocols are setup in very different ways.  This is not a problem
specific to apache.

You could host one server on 443 and one on 442, but you may still end up
with problems with firewalls.

It sounds to me like you need to talk to the firewall maintainers either
at your site or at your clients' sites.
