No.  Although both anycast and multicast addresses are
many-to-one mappings, anycast endpoints are intended to be
communicated with one at a time (depending on your network
location), whereas multicast endpoints are all communicated
with simultaneously.

You'll probably need to dig in the code to figure out why you
can't bind to an anycast address.
