Is it possible to use a factor loading matrix as input to run a simulation of a CFA in mplus? As in, if I give it a matrix looking something like

F1 F2
.4 0
.4 0
.4 0
0 .4
0 .4
0 .4

(and specify a factor correlation value if I want the factors to be nonorthoganol)

can I make mplus generate a covariance matrix from this and run simulations?

In Mplus, the Monte Carlo facility requires population values for each parameter in the model. It does not use a population variance/covariance matrix. See Chapters 11 and 18.
