I don't see why the hinges wouldn't work as a pivot point, but there's a lot more that goes into suicide doors than just a pivot point. You would still need the door to mount to the pivot point and of course have the opposite side able to securely latch closed/locked/etc.

Problem I see is you would have to remove all componets from the original door jams and switch them

In order to do that you would have to clean those areas up so alot of work would be involved to do so.
