Can you wrap wires in duct tape?

No, you shouldn't use duct tape to wrap wires. A wire nut can be used to cap the exposed end of a wire. If you want to coat a bare wire for any reason, you should replace it with an insulated wire or use heat-shrink tubing. If you must use tape, use an appropriately listed and labeled electrical tape instead.
