It is possible: Such delusions are certainly possible for a narcissistic individual and would be evidence of a fairly established case. Some are merely striving toward grandeur - thinking it has arrived is advanced!

Narcissism: Narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by unwarranted feelings of self-importance. A sense of entitlement and grandiosity. A strong need for admiration, but lack feelings of empathy. These qualities are usually defenses against a deep feeling of inferiority. Therapy can help. Best wishes.
