Technically yes. You would need to flush out all the old solvent ink and replace it with textile ink. Be sure to flush thoroughly and you might even want to run some Windex through the lines prior to using textile inks just to be sure all the solvent ink has been removed.

Good morning Tim,
By the way why are you asking this? Did you hands on solvent printer?
As Eric said technically yes. But not easy.
Change all. Not clean because solvent cannot be cleaned. There are no chemical to clean. Acid will melt others parts. We learned this by trial error. After we believed we cleaned 100% we add DuPont ink to tried. Result was all ink line was locked by ink residue of solvent and fresh DuPont reaction. Head and all~.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.
PS: Textile can be changed to Solvent is easy. Cleaning solution, windex, warm water ---.

Yes, better chance but we never did after surprise and do not want to do again. The costs are not reasonable to you and us. Labor and parts.
Think this way, can you change Disel car to Gasoline car? Yes possible but will you do this?
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

Same as criminal erase all finger prints and footsteps. Cost more than original printer $2500 new. Plus labor.
