The main concern is eventually with the ceramic and vinyl tile coming loose from the concrete. If it is vinyl tile that is well adhered to the concrete it will probably be okay to place ceramic over it...if it were linoleum then linoleum typically is not well attached to the concrete and you could have a bigger problem withh adhesion of the ceramic tile to the base flooring. It sounds like your situation might be safe to puut ceramic tile over vinyl tile assuming they do have a very good adhesive---the vinyl usually has a very slick surface and it would be difficult to get a good bond between it and the ceramic tile...I am sure more knowledgeable and experienced homeowners can give you more saged advice. These are just my two cents worthh.
