DIY stove tie-in for movie lights

Yes and if this is a "how to" to wire up lights for a grow-op UL compliance is the least of the OPs worries.

UL, who cares, he is not selling anything.

Liability, OK, you better make it safe. He should be able to run 240V lights from this, no problem. As others have stated, the 120 loads is a bit dicy since there is no neutral.
In a 4-wire, there is neutral. He would just need to run a 4-wire "cord" instead of a regular 3-wire with the 4-wire plug. Ground would be hooked up to case, 120V loads would be hooked up to neutral, and both hots make 240V.
