I'm not sure why you'd want to have duplicate user IDs offhand, but it is possible:
Using the -o option with commands like useradd, adduser and usermod will allow you to use duplicate/non-unique UID's.

Take a look at the documentation for them online: useradd, adduser and usermod.
Or take a look at the man pages and info pages for them on your own Linux system!
