Personally I would perform an upgrade on vCenter 5.1 to vCenter 5.5.0b, and all the components, SSO, Web Client, Inventory Service and vCenter 5.5.0b.

and upgrades can be a struggle, sometimes requiring a complete fresh installation from scratch.

If you are asking it in the perspective of compatibility then your question is answered above. If you are asking if SSO will run without vCenter9 for example to use it with vCAC 6.0) then may be even that is possible. I haven't come across such a use case till now.
