Looks like you can't. You could try symlinking the GIMP palette folder as subfolder to the LO palettes folder. If that doesn't work, you can symlink all of the palettes instead.

Symlinking will save you the trouble of updating the symlinked palettes in case they get updated. Even better if LO accepts GIMP's palette folder as subfolder, which allows you to add and remove palettes at will. I don't have a Linux to test it right now, so I can't be more sure.

EDIT: You could replace LO's palette folder with GIMP's while preserving the original LO palettes in the folder into GIMP's. That'll achieve same as symlinking as subfolder, but how LO and GIMP will react can be known by 1 way only. Be sure to check the folder's permissions and ownership before doing anything in case either LO or GIMP won't like this new setup.
