You can use your PoE account on steam and you do this by "linking" it with your steam account.
However the PoE client on steam is very "agressive" on your harddrive so I don't think you will be very happy with the result.

Feel free to e-mail GGG support directly about this and how to do this.

that the steam client is very slow to do updates and takes up lots of disc space when it updates.
Linking your Path of Exile account with your Steam account should allow you to play the game through both the Steam and standalone clients without losing any of your progress. As Sarno has mentioned, you can do this here: https://www.pathofexile.com/my-account/steam

If you're having trouble with this (such as if you're receiving an error message) please feel free to send an email to support@grindinggear.com and we'd be happy to look into this further with you :)

On the other hand if Tencent ever forces GGG to include spyware in the game you can bet they probably wont try to pass it through the Steam version after the whole Red Shell outrage.

Probably... maybe... perhaps? Admittedly I do not know.
