> Once again quickly re my other question, maybe you also have an opinion on whether, just as a robustness test, I could fit OLS as an approximation of the tobit model and use outlier diagnostics thereafter and then simulate the tobit without these identified cases? Or would I be doing something completely wrong? According to Wooldridge a linear model is a good approximation for E(y) in a corner solution model which is what I am looking at. That's why I am thinking that way.

I would not do that. It is possible that a linear regression is a good
approximation of a tobit model in your data, but there is no
guarantee. Moreover, it is not necessary as you can compute dfbetas in
a tobit model, as I have shown before:
