You cannot use the baked AO to UV map and masking in a sculpt workflow, no.
It is an interesting technique though for visualising a final sculpt.
However the basic setup of any matcap as a texture is so simple, it can
take less than a minute.
I just found this, which provides all the details at a glance:

Just for reference, you can do this in cycles:

Plus if you wanted to use nodes to colour the recessed areas procedurally,
you could use a colour ramp.

In theory you could combine the matcap and colour ramp technique, to get a
procedural version of the previous video, but I have not tried to do it.
