Can you put a halogen bulb on a dimmer switch?

Yes. It depends on the fixture. If the bulb runs at line voltage

(i.e. without a transformer), then yes. If it's a low voltage

halogen bulb, such as a 12 volt running off of a transformer, then

you'll need to find out if the transformer is dimmable.
