No, you can't. What are you trying to accomplish? There may be a better way.

As sxnxr said, there's no need to use esxtop for that as those metrics are gathered. Also, keep in mind the difference between esxtop and vROps is that esxtop is a real-time tool whereas vROps is only historical.

You can run esxtop from vCenter webclient.

there are certain limitations though.

Also check for VisualESXtop if you have to have a GUI based esxtop monitoring.
