Selection is mighty slim but they are available

The answer is yes but be sure you buy a tire that will fit your ISO 349 rim. At one time the 16" wheel on recumbent bikes was a lot more common but these days with fewer bikes and more trikes being made it has become harder to find. You can see all about rim sizes here It is also true that fractional size tires such as 16 X 1+1/4 are not interchangeable with 16 X 1.25 (ISO 305). Found that out the hard way when I bought a tire at my local discount store. It was the right diameter in inches but would not mount on the rim. Schwalbe makes a 16 inch ISO 349 tire in 1+1/4 width.
