Tantalum capacitors are specified to make life exciting and to help remind you of the bad old days :-).
A Tantalum capacitor has good capacitance per volume and low ESR, at the expense of a propensity to (any or all of) smoke, shriek, burst into flame and explode when subjected to small voltage excursions above rated value when connected to an other than low energy source. In this application it may be safe enough. Or not.
This answer Are tantalum capacitors safe for use in new designs? explains (at great length :-) ) the relevant considerations.
In this case, as others have noted, using an MLCC, possibly with a small series resistor, will do as good a job and avoid the more exciting aspects of tantalum capacitor failure.
From Kemet "APPLICATION NOTES FOR TANTALUM CAPACITORS"
Capacitor failure may be induced by exceeding the
rated conditions of forward DC voltage, reverse DC voltage, surge voltage, surge current, power dissipation, or
As with any practical device, these capacitors also possess an inherent, although low, failure rate
when operated within the rated condition.
The dominant failure mode is by short-circuit.
... Catastrophic failure occurs as an avalanche in
DC leakage current over a short (millisecond) time span.
The failed capacitor, while called “short-circuited”, may
exhibit a DC resistance of 10 to 104 ohm.
