yes it is if you know what you are doing , But why not pull up the old flooring

so not recommended. tile of all varieties absolutely requires a floor that does not give at all ... or your mortar [thinset] will develop cracks and fail

You need purchase a spirit - level
and test the entire floor thoroughly for stability or even-ness
before you think of using laminated flooring - it need be level,
or to slope steadily / evenly at/ to one angle only.

its not possible over laminate flooring ..it has an underlay ..the floor itself floats ...its possible over engineered flooring as it actually a ply wood ..however you would need to carefully examine floor ...zero bounce and all planks securely screwed down ..PVA the floor ..its very important you use flexibly adhesive and just as important ...flexibly grout ..retailers sell it ..you can buy it premixed but often its an additive ..you add it to standard products

"Can you?" sure, you "can".
But it's going to be a big mess.
The laminate flooring is made to float (move) which is going to crack the grout / unseal the tiles.
