Yes, of course it's possible.
A virtual machine runs the same kernel as a physical machine, has the same network stack, and the same concept of a network interface which its traffic goes in and out of.
The VMWare vSwitch is a software implementation of a network switch, so is the Linux bridge driver used in KVM.
If you search Google for "linux gre tunnel" you'll find many copy-paste examples.
