I've done this (crudely) with a convoluted workflow. Apologies in
advance, as I can't remember the exact details.
I used preview.sty to generate the TikZ picture to an appropriately sized
PDF image. Then I used InkScape to open the PDF and save it as SVG.
I then opened the SVG in Visio 2010, and pasted it into MS Word as some
form of metafile. This for me was a key step, as the InkScape EMF/WMFs
Somewhere along the chain I ended up with ferociously large SVGs (10MB was
not uncommon) and I can't remember now what trick/tool I used to simplify
the SVG back down.
But this route has worked well for me.
I think I might occasionally have had to fix textboxes in the end
metafiles, but in general they were okay.
