No. The .vob files are just part of the DVD file structure. For a Linux-based
solution, investigate dvdauthor.
dvdrecord and cdrecord-ProDVD are just the burning apps, they have nothing to
do with creating the image you need to burn. The dvdauthor app can create a
DVD structure from VOB or MPEG files. The mkisofs can create an ISO image
that is burnable to DVD media.

Here is the dvdauthor page:
There are many other googleable sites with good information.
