I have not tried it yet. Truth be told i have known people that smoke Tangiers in a normal Egyptian bowl. They say it's really just about heat management. I have never tried it personally. By this logic it should work in a vortex but I am not sure exactly how well or what extra precautions you may need to take. The structure of the funnel, vortex and the more common Egyptian bowls are surprisingly different from each other. Funnel bowls are shallower than the vortex but spread the tobacco over more surface area. Egyptian clay bowls vary so much it's not worth getting into but my favorite is wide and fairly shallowed compared to many I have seen.

I do it all the time since my vortex is smaller then my phunnel. Just use the same method with packing it in a phunnel.

I smoke it out of my vortex all the time. It works fine, I usually pack some nakhla grape/double apple at the bottom, you don't taste it much & it uses less tangiers.
