Even if you could, why would you want to roll a Roth IRA into a 401(k)?

You've already paid all the taxes you're going to pay on the money in the Roth IRA.

If you roll it into a 401(k), you've got to pay ordinary income taxes on the money when you take it out. Double taxation -- that you cause yourself. My recommendation: don't cause double taxation.
