"J'ai tenu une conversation en française". Is this a correct use of tenir?

Indeed you can use the verb 'tenir' ( une conversation) for to conduct, carry on or maintain a conversation or just to converse.
J'arrive à tenir une conversation en français. = I am able to conduct a conversation in French.
Hope this helps!
