But I would think that to tread *on* the truth would not be the same thing as to tread, say, the path of truth or something of that nature. To "tread on the truth" sounds a lot like to walk all over it, rather than to walk its path. (If there is such a path, of course. Difficult sometimes to know what that might be, things seldom being so black and white.)
I agree Redwood Girl. Context is everything and much could be learned by knowing the words and thoughts that surround this phrase.
