Can a server2008r2 RDS License Server be on a low-performance machine.

All it's going to be doing is responding to Remote Desktop Services user license requests, nothing else.

Can it be 600mb RAM, fairly low CPU and fairly low disk I/O speed?

Thanks.

Consider 2008 R2 is x64. As you made the question, I assume you are thinking about using an old box. If this is it, old boxes might/could be x86.
BTW: yes it should be enough even thought 600MB (not mb) are low even for booting a 2008 R2.

Microsoft recommend min 512 ram but do you really think its sufficient for Windows 2008R2

The question is not if I think it is sufficient or not. The question is if it does run with (only) 600MB. The answer is: yes. That said, the more memory you have, the better it is.
I boot successfully a 2008 R2 with (only) 512MB. It takes a century compared to a state-of-the-art server with plenty of RAM. But it works.
