IMO, not feasible. A "squirel" cage motor has a squirel cage rotor, which are shorted loops of copper bar (wire?) These loops line themselves up to the magnetic field induced by the 3-phase electrical supply and because that field moves around, so does the rotor.

I came across this site on the internet:(http://www.otherpower.com/otherpower_wind_alternators.html). Perhaps it will help.

Something like milling the rotor down to fit magnets onto the rotor.
