Is it methodologically sound to run a CFA to find the fit of two items with likert response options of 1,2,3 and 4 with one item that only has dichotomous response options of 1 and 2?

You can combine ordered categorical and binary items. With only three factor indicators, the model is just-identified so you will not be able to assess model fit.
