    Quick question, is there a way to incorporate the textures from CSS, DODS, HL2, etc. in TF2's version of the Source SDK?

    Yes there is, but then you would have to include the copyrighted textures you used inside your bsp, which would make your map illegal to distribute.

    Technically Valve already own those materials so there's not really an issue there; and such copyright infringement is only illegal if you profit from it (IE Valve could never buy it and redistribute it as a part of their own product (if they didn't already own it, that is)). But why you would want to do this is beyond me, any HL2 related textures look ugly as fuck in TF2.

    You heard the man, we have a request area here if you need some textures made.
