It sounds lik Subversion itself is not capable of this. You have the
files you want, but they are not in the format of a WC. I am not aware of
anyway to turn it into a WC, without doing a checkout. If you can somehow
use the command line or Tortoise to turn this into a WC, then you should
be able to do Team -> Share Project in Subclipse, it will see the .svn
folders and let you just associate the existing info with Subclipse.

Bottom line is that Subclipse has no ability to do stuff that the command
line is not capable of either.
