    The Tile Councils Handbook says it can be done over structurally sound tile. They recommend the tile be scarified and thoroughly cleaned. A modified thin-set mortar should probably be used. check with the manufacturer.
    You also have to consider how the base will be handled. If their is a cove, how will the new base cover it and connect to the wall.
