I would like to give my FileMaker 14 application a fresh look. Is it possible to replace a button icon in the "Button Setup" inspector, so the icon gets changed "automatically" on all the layouts it is currently used.
Button styles are all part of Themes. To make a new button, you just make the changes you want to make to a button, using the Appearance panel on the Inspector, then (1) either save the changes to the current style or save the style under a new name; then (2) save the changes to the theme, again either using the same name or giving it a new name. Note, either way it will show up as a custom theme. Once you have done that your custom button can be reused anywhere in your solution.
I gave the same answer, but then I checked it out and deleted it.
If you associate AN ICON to a button and save a style, then create another button and apply the same style, all formatting EXCEPT the icon will be applied.
Really? That is not my experience. I have several buttons where I have one icon/image for normal state and another for hover state, and these are all saved and applied correctly.
See attached, apply the KitschButton style to the test2 button.
Ahh! That's not what I was referring to. I was talking about using an image as the button's fill.

Yeah I thought so. Fact is, the answer to the OP's question is "no, you can't".
I always build a button as an assembly of an icon and a text. I have two global tables, on for the icon and this other for the text.
If I want to change the icon of all same type of button, I change the icon in the table. I can do the same for the text.
