Can System Center Operations Manager Lync Watcher nodes be used to monitor Skype for Business Online?

It can not. There are 3rd parties that can provide external monitoring of Skype for Business online https://www.exoprise.com/2016/05/02/monitoring-skype-business-16/ but the SCOM management pack for Skype for Business 2015 can't be used to monitor the online tenant as far as I am aware.

That's right Aaron. The exoprise solution integrates with SCOM - https://www.exoprise.com/2016/04/18/scom-office-365-monitoring/. And you can run it free for 15 days https://www.exoprise.com/freetrial It's fully functional limited only by how much you can monitor for how long.
