That is the correct US spelling of the term "winterize" (make ready for colder weather). The UK spelling is winterise.
Sure you can turn off the pool pump, the water won't be circulating anymore but since you are not using the pool it does not matter. Make sure the outside temperature is above freezing until winterizing because non moving water freezes earlier than moving water.

Run pool filter and pump for 1 hour, to allow chemicals to circulate. Drain the water to skimmer level. Install the pool cover and secure it by tie downs or water bags. Set the pool filter to winter button and if it does not have one keep it to neutral. Open the filter and allow draining out of water and leave the cover open to let moisture evaporate.Plug off and drain the pump, and suck out the remaining water.
