If the slab is solid, level, and clean, your good in all 50 states.

Not sure if you have to worry about moisture under tile buy I would tape a square foot of plastic sheet down and leave alone for 24 hours and see if any water is under it.

If you haven't had any moisture problems with carpet I wouldn't worry about it. Just give the slab a close inspection and grind off any bumps that might prevent the tile from sitting flat.
