Can Ansible Replace Terraform?

Ansible cannot replace Terraform, because they serve different purposes. Ansible is a configuration management tool, while Terraform is an orchestrator. Orchestrators keep a system in their desired state through automated computation while configuration management tools fix a problem locally. Orchestration tools tend to be better suited for a system that need a constant and invariable state, while configuration management tools are better suited for environments that change.
