VDFVDF —VHFVHF —Very High Frequency direction finding will certainly provide a bearing. This can be true or magnetic as the variation at the tower will be known. If there is no wind, the ATCATCATC —Air Traffic ControlAir Traffic Control will also be able to give the pilot's heading, as that will be identical to their track, but if there is any wind at all track and heading will likely be different so this is not possible.

Note that ATCATC —Air Traffic Control do not know when the pilot transmitted so there is no way of measuring distance, height or altitude as you do not know how long the signal took to get from the aircraft to the receiver.
