As Phil (Phatt) states, you can’t achieve the switching that you want, but there are still things you could do with that switch to get a range of sounds from your pickup.
Connect the ‘wiper/common’ to the junction between your coils (ie, the ‘tap’ point) and connect one of the other switch poles to ground. That will give you a straight ‘tapped’ single-coil sound. Then connect the other pole of your switch to a suitable capacitor (you’ll need to experiment to find which one best suits your pickup and taste) and connect the other end of the cap to ground (you can use the grounded pole on the switch for this). This latter combination gives a partial single coil sound, as some of the frequencies are shorted to ground.
I hope this helps you achieve something close to what you want.
