Octave has just a tiny subset of TeX.
I think you should figure out why cat-n-paste did not work.
Was it actual pasting that did not work, or paste worked but symbols did not
show up on the plot screen? (In that case may be the default font on
Windows does not
have Å. Try Cambria instead.

I can do something like:

octave:1> plot(1:10)
octave:2> title ("Å", "fontname", "cambria", "fontsize", 24)
octave:3> xlabel("დრო", "fontname", "noto georgian")
octave:4> ylabel("Nhiệt độ", "fontname", "cambria")

And get the attached plot.
