I want to mob-proof the main island in the End and I'd like to use carpets for it, as they are cheap (for me, I have a massive sheep farm) and also look nicer in my eyes than most slabs. Can Endermen spawn on carpets?

Nope! As of patch 1.8,

Carpets now have a hitbox height of 1⁄16 of a block instead of 0. As a result of this, mobs can no longer spawn on carpet.
