Likely no.
What are you going to put down to replace the carpet?
Might have to get rid of the particle board in any case IMO.

If you are installing tile, the particle board must go anyway.

I agree, I would not waste my time trying to get it off. Partical board is one of the lamest ideas ever came up with.
It's not a sutable subflooring for any flooring.
It gets wet just once and it turns to oat meal.

Then take the time to do it right and rip it all out now before it becomes an issue later on.
There is just 0 reasons to keep a partical board subfloor.
