It should be possible but I don't see anything already existing
providing that functionality: tab-bar.el deals only with frame-local
tabs I think. You'd have to write your own function, looping over
frames, gathering tab names for each frame and adding them to the
completion list. Choosing a tab would involve checking the frame of
the selected tab and selecting that frame (if different), before
selecting the tab.
