You can restore a database from two previous versions of SQL Server.

So SQL 2014 can restore a database from SQl2012 or SQL2008 and either SQL2008, or SQL2012, can restore a backup from SQL2005.

Thus you need to install either SQL2008 or SQL2012, restore a backup from SQL2005 (or upgrade the server the database(s) are one) and then backup and repeat again for SQL2014.

If you meant setting the Compatibility Level then it is not possible to set SQL2005 compatibility level in SQL2014. The same "two previous versions" rule applies
