2016 Update: A new product (Native Barcode Generator for Excel) has been released since this question was resolved that offers an easier method of generating barcodes in Excel.

There is not an option to encode QR Code barcodes directly in Excel for Mac (any version) as it requires a DLL for encoding. The Barcode Add-In for Excel, though seems like a logical option, actually requires the 2D DLLS to encode data for 2D barcodes, such as QR Code.

Alternatives:

Option 1
Windows only: Encode QR Code in Excel for Windows and complete the merge process on Windows.

Option 2
Encode QR code in Excel for Windows using VBA or Barcode Add-In and export the file as a CSV for MAC.

NOTE: Since the encoded data for 2D barcodes include carriage returns and line feeds, the file exported to CSV may only display one line as the rest of the day will not be available. The only way to eliminate this problem is to use the SUBSTITUTE function and replace all carriage returns and line feeds with another character such as a space. After importing into Excel for Mac, the encoded data will remain, but the user is responsible for reinserting the carriage returns and line feeds.

Option 3
The Data Matrix Font Advantage Package includes Native VBA code that does not require a DLL. It should function within Excel 2004 and Excel 2011 for Mac, as well as Excel for Windows.
