I'm not a Quickbooks expert here, but I do support it at some of my windows clients site. Newer versions of quickbooks use an installed application called "quickbooks server" to manage client connections. I have never heard of a Mac version of this app, and seriously doubt that it exists.
Given that I doubt you will ever be able to have multiple users connect to that quickbooks file at the same time and not have data corruption if sharing it from a Mac platform. If you only have one user connecting at a time you might be able to pull it off, but I would make lots of backups.
Personally I would never take this kind of chance with my accounting. I would either switch to a Mac based product or set up a windows desktop to manage the sharing of the quickbooks file.
I'd be pretty comfortable running the quickbooks server under a Windows VM, either VMWare or Parallels.
