I just did some quick research and its a possibility...

On my phone (which is not carrier branded) a brief test shows that it works.

It appears if you bought your phone directly from a carrier (Verizon, Att, etc.) then it may get blocked on the official rom without a tether payment. For instance going into settings -> more -> tethering and hotspot would allow the carrier to disable data when enabled because its set up to do that on the phone (think software check).

But, it may then be possible to root the phone and either flash a new rom or possibly install a different tethering app from the play store to get around the carrier check since its mostly software based.

Other tethering can cause flags to be raised as well such as desktop browser identity being sent over the mobile data. Switching the desktop browser to a mobile identity could possibly help there.

But, I'm no expert after a only few minutes so don't quote me on any of it.
