Basically, no, you can't. That proxy service is designed for access by a web browser only. What you'd need is something that proxies bittorrent protocol messages directly through your TCP/IP stack.

You'd need something similar to TOR -- but not TOR, which is not to be used for P2P. TOR depends on volunteers offering bandwidth to the community. If they see people hogging it for bittorrent, they won't offer it anymore. I mention TOR as a place to read up on what you would need a free proxy to do.

If you had such a proxy, you could only operate in no-listen-port mode. To go beyond that would require something like TPB's IPREDator service. There are no free services of this type. If there were, they'd soon be absolutely swamped with traffic, and wouldn't last long.
