Not direct conversion, but you can work the Triploid
Route from Tet to Dip as well as from Dip to Tet.

1.  Cross Tet X Dip & Dip X Tet.

2.  Select for fertility among the Triploids.

3.  Intercross the Triploids and cross Triploids with Diploids.

4.  Select for Diploids.

A proven method for injecting TB & BB genes into the MTBs.
But don't expect to be overrun with seedlings....
