There is, apparently, no automated TeX/LaTeX rendering or authoring support in 
Scribus at this time. Watch:

Issue 0000128: TeX rendering engine

Issue 0003698: LaTeX import

Until one or both issues are solved in one form or another, I recommend to 
your client LyX or similar for direct TeX/LaTeX editing.

That, or write a Scribus plug-in adding LaTeX support. :)
