Yes, vCenter 5.x supported management of ESXi 4.1 hosts.

and you can then Migrate (Hot or Cold), the VM hosted on 4.1 to 5.x.

If you are going to discontinue the 4.1 host, you can then upgrade the VMware Tools and then later virtual machine hardware (in that order), but only if you do not need to move back to the 4.1 host.
