Yes, you can! As you mentioned implicitely, you will have to cross passport control, so you need to be legal doing this. I have heard of very few incidents where someone was turned down at the passport control after being asked where they are flying. And if I am not totally mistaken, the Lounge in D (nonschengen) is one of the official replacements for the closed A lounges at the moment. So if they will not let you cross passport control downstairs directly to E, you might want to try at the B/D crossing and head to E then (which includes an additional security check).
