Can you create a tile package using a 10.1 client with 10.0 Server? we are planning to move to 10.1 overall but an application a vendor want us to test requires a tile package. Has anyone does this? ESRI is this possible?

The Geoprocessing Tool "Export Map Server Cache" was available with ArcGIS 10.0 but it's parameters changed at 10.1 to allow the export of Tile Packages. Therefore you can use ArcGIS 10.0 Desktop & Server to achieve this or ArcGIS 10.1 Desktop and Server. Note that ArcGIS Server 10.0 cannot create Tile Packages. Alternatively you may find calling the server tool from a Python script works better for you - there are examples in the tool help links below (for both 10.0 and 10.1).
However, the ArcGISLocalTiledLayer can read both Tile Packages as TPK files and and compact cache from the file system (the Path property needs to point to the folder containing the conf.cdi file). You can therefore test with a cache generated by ArcGIS Server 10.0 as a compact cache. Depending on what type of testing you wish to undertake, you could just copy the files from the server to your client machine - but beware that the cache could be many gigabytes.
