Is it possible to create a data entity model from an existing xml file automatically? Are there any tools to do this?

Not as far as I know.
Though an Entity Data Model is an XML file, it is hard to expect to find a tool that can take any XML file and convert its format to that of an Entity Data Model.
You're better off building the Data Model using a bottom up (database first) or top down (model first) approach. Afterwards you can always adjust the model through the designer or by manually manipulating the underlying XML.
