Can an asa5500x running 9.x terminate MPLS in place of an MPLS router?

No, the ASA can't terminate

No, the ASA can't terminate MPLS. But are you sure that you really need that? From a customer-perspective, the link to the MPLS-provider-router is a pure IP-link. So you can connect your ASA to an MPLS-provider in that way.

Do you mean can an ASA act as

Do you mean can an ASA act as a PE device, ie. it supports MPLS labels and MP-BGP for the VPN routes, then as far as I am aware this is not supported.

If you mean can it act as a CE device running BGP and peering with a PE router then yes because that is just a standard BGP connection and BGP support was added in version 9.2(1) of the software.

Edit - sorry Karsten, didn't see your reply.
