Not with CWM. If you really want to unroot you need to relock the bootloader and use a ROM Update Utility (RUU) to reflash the stock firmware. That will also remove CWM, which you want to do if returning it to HTC.

You'll need to tell us what type of handset you have, whether it is branded or not, and is so what network, so that we can find the right RUU for your phone. Or can we just assume ATT? In which case Scotty linked it in post #2 above.

If you took a backup with CWM before rooting then restoring that would restore the unrooted ROM, but you'd still have a custom recovery installed. That's why we want the RUU.
