Yes, you can fracture or crack your tooth just from chewing on ice. Chewing ice also wears down the enamel on your teeth.
Enamel is really hard but if it is undermined in some way (e.g. decayed dentine underneath or if the tooth has a big filling), then chewing on ice can chip the tooth and/or the filling. Also, if you make a habit of chewing ice (or gum for that matter), it can contribute to TMJ (temperomandibular joint, i.e. jaw joint) problems like pain or discomfort.
