Two possible options and neither is simple or guaranteed.

1)You can make a boot cassette IF it is a single block binary load file; you need a header on the file with load & run address and it must be written with short inter-record gaps. There were utilities back in the 80s which could make this conversion.

2)Another option is a short BASIC program which reads the data from the tape and puts it in the correct memory locations and then executes the code IF the code does not conflict with the language cartridge and its memory usage.
