I think not.  I would bet that the copyright and/or license severely
restricts what you can do with it.

The license may allow you to modify the copy of the toolbox that you
purchased so that it will run with Octave.  Or it may not.  Perhaps
you should ask the MathWorks instead of asking here.

But, even if the license does allow you to modify the toolbox so that
it will work with Octave, wouldn't it be more useful for everyone if
you helped to write a free replacement instead?  Then everyone would
benefit from your efforts.
