You can simply copy the character.
display('α')
ylabel('α')

In "more properties" in "Text" change interpreter as "tex"

Assuming that you have a newer version of MATLAB:
In the case that you want to change the interpreter for an axes label:
Click on the axes label you are interested in. Then use the Figure menu item Edit -> current object properties to bring up the Property Inspector. In the Ticks section, click on the downward-pointing triangle that is below "YTickLabel" in order to show more Ticks properties. Scroll down there and you will see TickLabelInterpreter and a drop-menu there to change it
In the case that you want to change the interpreter for something written on the plot using text():
Click on the text you are interested in. Then use the Figure menu item Edit -> current object properties to bring up the Property Inspector. In the TEXT section (near the top), you will see Interpreter and a drop menu there to change it.
If you have an older version of MATLAB, the details might be different (for example it was different around 2016)
