No, you can only go as far as Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Unsure if iTunes (probably 11) will work on Leopard in the fall, so you should think about getting a new mac.

The ibook G4 will run Leopard (10.5), but not Snow Leopard (or Lion). Leopard has been maintained with security updates and the like, so it is not "outdated" yet - but this will probably change once Lion is launched.
Depending on the specs of your ibook, you should be able to download and run the latest version of iTunes (10.3) in Leopard, which will manage your iPod Touch.

Unfortunately, Snow Leopard will not install on a Mac with a G4 processor. The Mac must be Intel-based.
