After fooling around with this for a day, I worked out the following
1. filter the latex code with a gawk program to set the margins to zero and
to get rid of page numbers
2. process the latex code to create a dvi
3. use dvips to create an eps 
dvips -E -o  name.eps name.dvi
4. insert the eps into the Lyx file
5. wrote a matlab function to carry out the steps of creating the eps

Now, if I run the matlab function, the eps in the Lyx file will also update.

Step #3 is brittle and will almost certainly fail if the dvi output has more
than one page

If anyone is interested, email me and I will share the scripts.
