Quickly looking at the KA200 specs, I say yes.  I haven't done it, but someone else here may have or done similar, and can shed more light immediately for you without me having to delve deeply.  I'll wait a bit for more knowledgable info to hopefully pop up.

cheers,

Yes, it can be done with the Protocol block.  You'll want to get more familiar with the specific strings needed to interface with the Mitutoyo by first using a raw terminal program like Brays terminal to get what you'll need to implement into the PLC program.

Find a computer that still has a serial port, install the terminal program, connect it to the counter, and start sending codes to figure out the response format.
