If the concrete has no cracks or movement, then yes you can. Prep the surface of the concrete first- either power wash and/or use muriatic acid. Also consider what will happen to the step height at the door before doing this.

You could also just mortar the perimeter, and use a sand bed for the field. Another option is to use paver glue to adhere the pavers to the concrete.
