No, the linolium and any 1/4 plywood, and or partical board needs to go first.
You also need to be taking a lokk at what subflooring you have, the widths of the floor joist, the lengths of the unsupported spans.
Tile can be laid over anything that flexes or moves.

Why can't you put cement board over the linolium considering cement board is solid? Linolium, if it's still good, is already pretty flush with the floor. I don't see how you would have much if any flexes if laid over? Just not good practice? Or?

Ceramic tile


The 1/4" underlayment under the sheet goods makes for an unstable sandwich---

It might be successful but 'Might' is kind of risky to tile over.

Ceramic tile


Can you, probably, should you NO!!! This will raise the floor 1/2" + the tile thickness and leave a high toe stubber from the next room. If in a bathroom, you will have issues getting the toilet installed(needs new or add on flange)
