That I know of, you cannot.  Why would you want to?  Is there a reason you want to do this?

Not exactly what you've asked for but you could remote desktop into a computer which is on the domain with the management tools installed.

Start -> Run -> mstsc

As I understand the question you have asked, you simply cannot.  If the machine is not part of the domain, then it has NO IDEA who the domain account is and won't let you run the application (any application).

You have to run as a LOCAL admin, not a domain admin OR you have to join the computer to the domain. Period.
