No, your Philadelphia local wage tax is separate from your PA state return and there is no available deduction for these taxes on your state return.  However, this amount would be a deduction from your federal return as a local income tax paid on Schedule A if you are itemizing your deductions.  TurboTax would automatically include this amount as long as you entered it into your W2 section in the Federal section.
