Hi, everyone.  A Stata user sent me the below private message, which

Subject: your outreg2 and tobit question

Hi Dorothy,
I get the statalist in digest form, and didn't have a good way to
reply to the list.  But if this works, maybe you can post it back to
the list?  (and I will likely sign up for the non-digest form of the
list with a new email address once I get a chance).
I haven't tried this when using tobit, but I encountered a similar
issue when running multilevel models using xtmixed.  For me, the
option "onecol" on the outreg2 command put the random effects
information into the same column as the main (fixed effects)
coefficients.  So, that might work for you, if you haven't tried it
