Can you die from decreased sweating?

In brief: Possibly
If you are in a high temperture, stressed environment, sometimes you run out of fluid to make sweat or you develop what is termed "heat exhaustion" and death can result.
This is obviously uncommon but can occur in dry hot climates and much work is done for athletes in summer training to add water and salt to their intake to prevent these problems.
