If a saltillo tile floor has been properly installed, can ceramic tile be installed using a mud base without removing the old tile?

The short answer is yes. You can strip the Saltillo of its finish and bond a floor leveler to it (many are self-bonding). Then go over everything with new thin set adhesive and tile.

The problem will be with the height increase. Otherwise, no problemo.
