I am setting up a Terminal Server. In the past I added OLP Microsoft Office Licenses to it. This customer has a full Office 365 subscription. Has Microsoft addressed a method to allow them to use their licenses on a Terminal Server without having to purchase it all over again?

Office 365 has always allowed terminal server usage as long as every user on the terminal server had a USL (User Subscription License...or the subscription equivalent of a CAL.)

More recently, the Office 365 installer was updated to support a "shared computer" model which includes installing on a terminal server so you didn't have to track down traditional MSI installers. Installing O365 with the shared computer setting does now install and does work with terminal services. There is a full article on TechNet about installing Office 365 on a shared computer and how to do it.
