In brief: Yes
There are no contraindications to vitamin d supplementation while on chemotherapy.
There are vitamin d receptors found in breast tissue. Vitamin d has been shown to decrease the chance of developing certain benign and malignant types of breast cancer. However in the case of active breast cancer, while on chemotherapy, I do not believe there's any data showing benefits of vitamin d during chemo.

I've written an article on this very topic, which can be found at mdprevent.
Blogspot.Com while taking vitamin d is not expected to interfere with the chemotherapy, it probably will do little to help with the breast cancer prognosis.
