Your problem is less the weight of a few inches of dirt than it is the weight of the water that will be retained in the dirt.
If you are building new, you can plan for that weight, but if you are thinking of using an existing structure, you will need expert on-site advice from an engineer. Proceed with care.
If you do it, please come back to tell us how it went.
