By tint, I assume you mean paint. Laminate cabinets are much like wood cabinets, they can be painted as long as you do all of the preparation work correctly.

Laminate is a very smooth surface that can attract grease, dirt and other contaminants that need to be removed before priming and painting. Make sure you use a good quality primer that will stick to surfaces such as laminate.

This article suggests the correct primer to use, how to clean the cabinets and how to paint them properly.
I hope that helps.
