I see that small bits of veneer have lifted. Is it possible to simply fill in with wood filler to get an even surface and stain? I know the best thing is to lift the top and replace but that seems overkill

It needs to be replaced.
Ask a competent woodworker if you do not know how to work with veneer correctly.

Maybe one of the "experts" here will offer you some of their advice. lol

It depends what colour you want it to end up. If its real light that doesnt give much scope for filling , touching in, toning etc. If its going to end up medium to dark then you might get away with it. Experience helps here.
