There are two concepts at play here. Speciation and Convergent evolution.
Speciation is the evolutionary process by which new biological species arise.
I won't go deep into the details as the question asks how they can be similar but suffice to say that Speciation is the explanation as to why evolution can create difference branches even in identical situations, given this, and the fact that mutation is generally randomized, there is a statistically negligible chance the the same mutation would occur upon all the planets.
Which brings us to my answer. The only way in which to ensure that evolution would be similar between the planets would be for someone to interfere with the genetic structure of the creatures on the planets. The only reason why its not impossible is because you asked for similar evolutionary paths. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to DNA sample every single insect, plant and creature on four planets to ensure they were all identical and then cull those that were not?
An alternative non-evolutionary interference would be that the creatures do not reproduce but are instead grown and released into the ecosystem at a steady rate.
But what about convergent evolution?
This theory talks about the independent evolution of features, that is to say several different creatures developing the same kinds of abilities. Given our understanding of evolution (and constrained by my lesser understanding) it would be fair to say that you would still encounter inserts that appears to the casual observer to be doing similar things. Smaller lifeforms are so abundant and different that you would be hard pressed not to have something similar to ants, something similar to pollinators, etc. Plants would still be green (Assuming earth like condition, see this question.
I feel that generally you would still find the basic concepts, as survival of the fittest tends to mean that the most efficient way always wins out, so they would be common across all planets. Where you would start to encounter differences would be in the more complex life forms where you would notice changes. You would still find predators and prey, you would still find creatures that fly and creatures that swim in the seas. At this point, it all depends on how similar similar is as to if the answer is yes or no.
