I don't see anything that indicates that ordinary ftp can use a proxy. But ncftp can (and it's nicer and more feature rich than ftp). If you don't have ncftp installed it is likely to be included with your Linux distribution or you can get source or pre-built binaries from http://www.ncftp.com/. The proxy is enabled by editing ~/.ssh/firewall after you've used ncftp for the first time (see 'man ncftp' for more information).
