I bought iWork 09 at the Apple Store and it is installed on my MacBook Pro.

However, since I didn't buy it on the Mac App Store, when I go to the Mac App Store purchased tab the iWork apps are not listed.

Is there a way to register them on Mac App Store?

No, I'll link to some of the questions that cover this. The App Store version is sold and licensed differently than the version licensed online.
