Certainly the exhaust temperature of a GT is well above the temperature of steam catapult systems. So it's entirely feasible to heat water up to the desired figures.
Frankly it's even more feasible to pre-heat the water/steam with the waste heat, and then take the resultant steam up to the final pressure and heat by additional means.
My oven in my kitchen can be set hotter then the temperature of steam catapult systems. Can I add an steam catapult to that now? (The answer is yes, but it would take quite a long time to gather enough steam, so long that the isolation of the steam tank would become quite important to not loose the energy faster then gathering it)
Sorry to say, but just looking at the temperature is a massive oversimplification, to the point of being useless.
