I was wondering if it would be possible for Wine to allow JoyToKey to control such applications using Joytokey's mouse emulation?

I'm afraid not. Those type of programs using DXGrab to exclusively grab mouse pointer. While pointer is grabbed, no other program can interact with it. So it's X's limitation. Wine can't do anything about it.
