Unfortuantely not; LilyDev is compiled for x86 CPUs, whereas the
Pi 3 has an ARM CPU.

Unless your MacBook is 10 years old, it would be much faster to do
LilyPond development within a virtual machine on your MacBook.

That said, if you are only working on midi2ly, then you don't need
the full LilyPond developer infrastructure.  In fact, all you need
a python interpreter (and arguably git for the source code); MacOS
comes with python already.
