I would say no. Your piping is sized based on the pump. If you restrict it too much, you could cause problems. I'm no pool guy, but that's pump basics right there.

My 1hp pipe was connected with 1.5" plumbing, not a lot of flow
The 1 hp was on a different filter, constricted the flow I think
My 1.5hp w/new filter is now on the same pipe & much better flow
