I'm afraid not, you will need to upgrade to at least vCenter 5.5.

In-place upgrade of vCenter 5.1 to 5.5 is supported.

Also check your hardware supports ESXi 5.5.

Always remember This.
vCenter will be able to manage Hosts of its version or lower. It can never manage a Host of higher version than its own.
And Any doubt you have about Interoperability between any VMware products, you can always go to the VMware Product Interoperability Matrixes and check it.

Just in case you are wondering, vCenter 5.1 licensing works with vCenter 5.5.
