Yes it is. Reading the manual you will see:

    Name of attribute column to use for thematic display (must be numeric)

So the column you set will be used to separate the different areas by 
color. (Note the "must be numeric" part).
But I don't understand the "five vector maps".  Normally you would use 
d.vect.thematic if you have 5 categories in *one* vector map. Then 
setting i.e. column=cat would color each different cat value a different 
color. If the areas are already in separate vectors, then can't you just 
color each vector differently in the google earth display?
