No
heres an example of a EULA
UPGRADES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible
for the upgrade. Upon upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software
you upgraded from. After you upgrade, you may no longer use the software you upgraded from.

It doesn't matter. If a Windows XP license is used as a qualifying product for an upgrade, it cannot be used on another computer.

The key word here is Upgrade.
If the Windows 7 is an upgrade licence you can't reuse the old XP

If you are using the word upgrade loosely and the Windows 7 is a full licence, then providing the XP is not OEM supplied you could re-use it.
