Is it kosher to run, for instance, four black single conductor wires then appropriately color them with tape at the terminal ends?

Obviously running the appropriate color wire would be best but I ask only because I'm being given a giant spool of black 4awg copper and want to utilize it for a 4 conductor 240V run I need

Perfectly legal and acceptable, using #4.

...er ... as long as it's properly installed in some sort of conduit/raceway system....

That is not a issue as long it is bigger than 16mm² ( 6 AWG ) and have proper colour tape as well.

If you going to run this to subpanel just make sure you keep the netural and ground seperated { you may end up get a new ground bussbar that is only couple Euros. }

Merci.
