It is possible to estimate mediation effect using tobit mediation method in Mplus when the independent variable is censored?

What is the scale of

1. Exogenous variable
2. Mediator
3. Final outcome

1. Exogenous variable : ratio scale (censored continuous variable)
2. Mediator : intertval scale
3. Final outcome : intertval scale

In regression, the scale of exogenous variables is not an issue. Covariates can be continuous or binary. In both cases, they are treated as continuous. Given that the censored variable is the exogenous variable, indirect effect can be computed as the product of the two linear regression coefficients. It will be treated as continuous.
