That is precisely what they(he, in fact) claim to have done, plus an
interpreter for quite a bit (and growing) of non-primitive LaTeX. But
it only produces a bitmapped image of the whole of each bit of maths
emebedded in the HTML, not the actual maths.
There are now many web-related systems that process more or less
LaTeX-like input without using any of TeX's many engines to do it.
