I just has a look at msth32.dll (Word 97)
ThesCheck
ThesCloseMdt
ThesInit
ThesOpenMdt
ThesTerminate
ThesVersion
are the only exported functions.
Do you have the C headers/documentation for these functions?
They seem all you need for accessing the Thesaurus files.

you might use TWordApplication

[...]
var LangID        : OleVariant;
    Meaning       : OleVariant;
    mSysnonym     : SynonymInfo;
    i,j,k         : Integer;
    s             : string;
    mLine,mLine1  : Integer;

[...]
LangID:=wdGerman;
s:=Memo1.SelText;
if s='' then ShowMessage('Please mark word! ');
while s<>'' do
begin
  mSysnonym:=WordApplication1.SynonymInfo[s,LangId];
  if mSysnonym.Found then
  begin
    if not Assigned(ThesaurusForm) then
    begin
      ThesaurusForm:=TThesaurusForm.Create(nil);
    end;
    with ThesaurusForm do
    begin
      Edt_Word.Text:=s;
      SetLength(mSysLists,mSysnonym.MeaningCount+1);
      try
        for i:=1 to mSysnonym.MeaningCount do
        begin
          mSysLists[i-1]:=TStringList.Create;
          ListBox1.Items.Add(mSysnonym.MeaningList[i]);
          Meaning:=i;
          for j:=1 to MAXINT do
          begin
            try
              mSysLists[i-1].Add(mSysnonym.SynonymList[Meaning][j]);
              if Meaning=1 then ListBox2.Items.Add(mSysnonym.SynonymList[Meaning][j]);
            except Break; end;
          end;
        end;
        ListBox1.Items.Add('Ahnliche Begriffe');
        mSysLists[mSysnonym.MeaningCount]:=TStringList.Create;
        for i:=1 to MAXINT do
        begin
          try
            mSysLists[mSysnonym.MeaningCount].Add(mSysnonym.RelatedWordList[i]);
          except Break; end;
        end;
        k:=ShowModal;
        if (k=idOK) and (Edt_Replace.Text<>'') then
        begin
          Memo1.SelText:=Edt_Replace.Text;
          s:='';
        end else
        if (k=idRetry) then
        begin
          s:=ListBox2.Items[ListBox2.ItemIndex];
        end else
        if (k=idAbort) then  //back button
        begin
          s:=Memo1.SelText;
        end else
        begin
          s:='' ;
        end;
      finally
        ListBox1.Clear;
        ListBox2.Clear;
        for i:=0 to mSysnonym.MeaningCount do
        begin
          mSysLists[i].Free;
        end;
      end;
    end;
  end;
end;
