No, you cannot draw your dagger and attack with it while retaining your Duelist feature But you can draw your dagger as part of an attack and then use it. The core argument behind this answer is that you can only attack as a bonus action with your offhand weapon when you use your action to attack.

Bonus Actions, PHB p. 189: You can take only one bonus action on your turn, so you must choose which bonus action to use when you have more than one available.

Two-weapon fighting When you take the Attack action and attack with a light melee weapon that you’re holding in one hand [primary weapon], you can use a bonus action to attack with a different light melee weapon that you’re holding in the other hand [secondary weapon]. (PHB p.195) The second weapon must be in your other hand when ...
