Is it possible to use CCS to set breakpoints in code running on a C2000 that was compiled using a makefile instead of a project in CCS?
Yes, this is possible, as long as the proper symbols are loaded and the source search paths are specified.
Is the CCSv3 or v4?

I have CCS 3.3 available, but I would prefer to use newer versions of CCS
For v3, you can set up your debug search paths as shown in slide 27 of: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/images/d/d3/CCStudio_Tips_and_Tricks.pdf
For v4, you can set up your debug search paths as shown in slide 41 of: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/images/0/09/CCSv4_Tips_%26_Tricks.pdf
Note that the above is needed to set breakpoints on source lines in the editor. You can always set breakpoints from the Disassembly view anytime.
If you can move to v4, I would strongly recommend it. You can also use standard makefile projects which can make debugging easier to deal with.
This is excellent information. Thanks very much!
