I haven't tested it because they won't even allow outgoing ssh sessions from
here unless they're to "trusted" hosts but I'm 100% confident that
it will work.

cvs does all it's remote access by issuing rsh commands and ssh is
a completely drop in alternative for rsh except it does better

Once you're able to type ssh and get a sh on the remote box without typing
anything else (like uid and passwd) then cvs will work across it just fine.

Socksifying ssh actually buys you a lot more since you'll be able to tunnel
any command you want through it rather than just cvs.
