I assume yes by looking at photos of thumbies mounted on bar tops. You'll be in the largest cog when the lever is pointed away from you. The lever pointing at you, the rider, and you will be in the smallest cog. I use Shimano barend shifters and am considering mounting them on top as well.
But if you desire reverse action, switch your derailleur with the newer "low normal" action, like the new XT-760 derailleur, for example.
