No. I guess most of the package database (storing the information about the installed packages) is gone. You can't get it back by emerge --sync.

Let's see if somebody comes up with a better solution than reinstall.

You can find some tips in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=171015
There's a script for regenerating a stub of the package database in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=57911 but it needs the world file which you have deleted. Please follow up to the first topic.

Moved from Portage & Programming.
