The documentaion says all Protel designs and libraries can be read by Altium. Did you try to simply open the library file?

If they don't open directly, use the Import Wizard from the File menu to convert the files to Altium format.

You can open Protel file in Altium import wizard. But there will be no net connectivity. You can copy the footprint from PCB file to Altium library file by manually. But direct import, 8-O need to check
