I'd like to upgrade to Mint 14 KDE but I am running MATE, is it safe to upgrade?

By "upgrade" do you mean you have LM 13 or below and you wanna go to LM14? If so follow http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2
Or save off you data and do a fresh install **Perferred method**

Or are you running LM14 MATE but wanna add the KDE desktop to it?

These are very different things.
