No, I think that could hurt you. You'd mention other scholarship offers if you're trying to negotiate with a school with more money after you've been accepted. But if a school hasn't accepted you yet, it's not like they're going to be swayed by other offers from lower-ranking schools - and worse, it might give them the message that you're less likely to come if accepted, since you have a really tempting offer elsewhere.
