No, I'm afraid that's not possible. Logic's effects are part of the
application and can only be used within Logic. It's funny that exactly
those Logic effects you are naming, are also my favorites! But you can
get rather similar effects in Live. Live's Autofilter can similar to
some settings of Logic's Autofilter and also similar to the FuzWha.
Regarding tremolo you can use any VST in Live. The MDA plug-ins are
free and quite good. Think there's a tremolo there.
Instead of Logic's Tape Delay you can buy Augustus Loop and run it in
Live with midi foot pedals for "slowing down and speeding up the tape".
The new version, recent beta, is syncing to Live's clock and you can
even loop with it like you do with an Echoplex (although the EDP has
some additional functions).
All the best
