I can bypass the firewall of my university using putty and the proxy
setting to connect to an smtp server. I can type in smtp commands in
the putty window and it work great, but is it possible for me to
somehow connect my thunderbird client to putty so that I can use my
mailclient to send my mails instead.

This sounds like a simple port forwarding issue.
From the Putty configuration window goto:
In the "Add new Forwarded port:" enter these ports:
25 (smtp traffic for sendinf mail)
110 (pop3 for recieving mail)
destination would be 127.0.0.1 if the machine your connecting to is the mail
Otherwise enter the IP address of the mail server in the destination box.
With these settings in place open a putty session as you did before and try
Note Thunderbird will need to be configured to uses an SMTP server at 127.0.0.1
and a pop3
server at 127.0.0.1.
(127.0.0.1 is the local host.)
