In theory you could if the volume in ESXi were a thin vs thick disk, then
run disk utility within OSX from another bootable partition to edit the
partition you were using. Having said that I did a search and found a few
references on how to do what you're asking. The most promising

Running OSX as  VM isn't really supported or licensed and why we don't do
it.

Re: Macos-x-server Digest, Vol 72, Issue 4

Running OS X inside a VM is supported by VMware and Parallels for their respective virtualization solutions, and Apple's EULA for OS X supports it (check the EULA for your version of OS X for the current rights and restrictions on virtualizing that version of OS X.)

VMware has a KBase article that explains the restrictions on creating a virtual machine running Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server:

Thanks,
