You should just be able to drop in the math code as such:

\starttext
This is an example of the $\le$ operator.
\stoptext

You will get the proper encoding from the PDF generated.

You could theoretically do:

\def\LE{$\le$}

\starttext
This is an example of the \LE\ operator.
\stoptext

The reason why this is so is because the operators are designed to look
like proper math typesetting, what usually does not happen in many
situations with normal text. TeX was DEK's solution to typesetting
mathematically-oriented books and he would be unlikely to introduce a
counter-intuitive concept.
