If the game is available for Mac and PC (most are) than you can play the game on either platform using the same Steam account. Of course you can't play the game on 2 computers at once due to DRM.

The only exception would be Call of Duty: Black Ops. That game has separate versions for OS X and Windows that are not compatible with each other on Steam.
