I think you may be thinking too big. In the simple case, Condor will take an executable and input files, run your program, and then copy back the output when your program is finished.. Since Matlab is a licensed product, you have three choices.

1. You run as many copies of Matlab as you have licenses for.
2. You purchase the Matlab compiler and "compile" your Matlab program into an executable, which can be run anywhere without contacting a license server.
3. You use something else like GNU Octave.

As far as Condor configuration goes, there is not too much to specify in the most basic case. As always, the manual is a great resource. Perhaps you might also like the Condor Administration Tutorial presentation from Condor Week 2010:
