Yes, it's possible, but complicated. For us to give you useful information you need to provide more information about your goals.

Short: No it's not possible to change the colors on itself. You might want to checkout other maps which rely on OSM data.

Long: uses a rendered 'raster map' to display information, which can't be altered that way. Instead you have to tweak the map style, which is part of the rendering stack. As @keithonearth mentioned, this is pretty complex, and if you really like to do your own map style, you should rely on simple desktop renderer solutions as maperitive, tilemill, ... . IMHO creating an own style just for colouring the ways makes no sense ;)
