Yes. From a building code/design perspective, shelf angles are designed and detailed the same whether they are supporting anchored clay brick, CMU, or stone veneers. The one slight difference for clay masonry that might be a consideration for very tall walls is the shelf angles may need to be spaced more closely together to accommodate the vertical expansion of the clay brick over time.
