Although Amazon offers a VMware image import tool, these images won't boot for several reasons.  First, AWS EC2 network stack restricts layer 3 IP protocols, including multicast (for various security and other reasons). In addition, there are other limitations in the EC2 compute stack around support of GPT partition tables which also block deployment. The same is true for the newly introduced AWS-hosted VMware stack.
