No, you don't need a shapefile, but you need a data source for mapnik. 
Remember that Mapnik needs to work with closed areas, so I hope your 
boundaries are properly closed!

Anyway, please have a look at http://trac.mapnik.org/wiki/XMLGettingStarted - 
that's an example of how to use shapefiles. Just look at the osm-template.xml 
to see how to use a table of polygons from a PostGIS DB to feed a Mapnik

If you check the mapnik examples, everything will come naturally :-)
