Hi Luke,

No, FieldTrip does not allow for this ‘reverse' writing of the CTF format. Out of curiosity, is there a particular reason why you would want to do that? You could check the low-level ctf code that comes shipped with fieldtrip (in external/ctf/), there are a bunch of functions that start with write*. Reverse-engineering all this is probably possible (I would start with a low-level description of the data that is outputted as a structure by readCTFds.m. My hunch would be that the MATLAB-representation of the data should be in the exact same format to make it writeable.

Is anyone aware of any tools for writing CTF DS files out from fieldtrip data structures?

I see that it isn't listed as an option for ft_write_data (http://www.fieldtriptoolbox.org/faq/how_can_i_convert_one_dataformat_into_an_other) but perhaps others have already dealt with this issue?
