  It's not possible.

  It may be theoretically possible to convert CHAP to EAP-MD5, but that isn't very useful.

  It may also be theoretically possible to tunnel CHAP inside of EAP-TTLS, but that also isn't useful.  And FreeRADIUS can't do it.

  The better question is why are you trying to do this?
