From image servers? You mean taking a raster and converting it to vectors? That's possible, but very laborious, and I guess pointless in the case of OSM because there is vector OSM data: PBF / other formats, and we can import them directly.

PS: Just saw that you were talking about Manifold 8, not 9. 8 does not support PBF. However, there's a lot of OSM data in SHP and 8 supports that. You could also take 9, read PBF, export as SHP and read that in 8.
