No, I don't think he could have broken Hooker's line there either, and he would have been forced to break off at some point, but he would have attacked if Hooker had stayed put. That was his intention. He probably would have done so in any case, had he not been forced to turn and deal with Sedgwick.

It's odd in a way. When most people think of Chancellorsville, I imagine they think of Jackson's flank attack, and the fact that it was his last battle. But there was much more to the battle than Jackson's attack, and Hooker could have still won it.
