Yes it can be painted but with two caveats.
1. It will look cr@p but that is only my opinion.
2. Most paints will not last well on a floor.

If you must paint it, look at floor paints (as in paints for e.g. a garage or industrial floor) and no idea what colour choices you will have or in other words I do not have a clue :-) A more sensible approach - if you are not willing to remove the tiles and redo the floor to your liking - would be to cover the tiles with something else after a skim coat of floor levelling compound (where again I do not have a clue a bout levelling compounds). You may get some ideas from this site who manufacture the successor products to linoleum, i.e. marmoleum, http://www.forbo.com/flooring/en-gl/products/pfrv6u there are many more "plastic" tiles available etc.

BTW. I have never come across the idea that paint has to match floor tiles as I always thought of tiles as a rather permanent feature.

Thanks I was thinking it may look crap to but wasn't sure
