I do not understand  your question.

Are you asking:
   Can I install a new instance of SQL Server from Team Foundation Server?
or
   Can I deploy SQL Database Projects from Team Foundation Server?

I have sold a client a new foundations server. Will Sql 2008 install on it. Their old server has sql 2008 on it. Will the new one handle it....
What do you mean by "new foundations server"?

Is this a physical box or is this a software service?

If it is a physical box please describe the CPU, RAM, and Storage configuration, including the number and/or size of each.

"Principal Editions of SQL Server 2016" from here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx#TOP_Principal

Which looks like it does install on Foundation server. This also applied to SQL 2012. I assume it applies to 2014 as well. Check and see if the client has a software assurance agreement under open license. You might be able to upgrade the SQL.
