Yes, the Final Cut conversion will likely look better on the resulting DVD. As an experiment export as progressive to compare with how the interlace export looks on a final DVD (played on a DVD player). You may find exporting as progressive will result in smoother video and no shimmering around bright edges that I've seen with some Toast encoding.

I have content exported from Final Cut Studio as ProRes 4.2.2 and I'm making Bluray discs, DVDs and a PAL DVD. I used the 'convert' option in Toast to make the PAL DVD. Would the quality be better if I separately exported from Final Cut as PAL?

Just a general comment. The majority of Bluray players in Europe can play either NTSC or PAL directly. Most TV's also. Nowadays if I have PAL source I burn in PAL and if I have NTSC source I burn in NTSC. In general this works well no matter where the disc is used (USA or Germany). Although, I have noticed that some slow motion scenes on 1080i60 source material and burnt to BD stutter when played on an Germany PAL BD player (LG BD390).
