Well, yes!

But for the record ...

>From X to the VTs one can use chvt(1), first

  $ sudo chmod +s /bin/chvt

then, for example with the cwm window manager

  bind-key M-e "chvt 1"

In the VTs one can also use chvt of course but also the
remap.inc file, for example
  alt keycode 38 = Incr_Console # M-l, cycle right
  alt keycode 36 = Decr_Console # M-j, cycle left

  alt keycode 18 = Console_1    # M-e, tty/Emacs
  alt keycode 22 = Console_6    # M-u, X/xterm/tmux/zsh
