The degree symbol is ASCII character 176. So, here is a simple way:
% Plot some random data
plot(rand(100,1),rand(100,1),'.')
% Set the tick positions, and label them with degrees
set(gca,'XTick',[0 0.5 1],'XTickLabel',{['98',char(176),'E'],['99',char(176),'E'],['100',char(176),'E']})
There are more sophisticated ways to build a longer vector (but using the same basic idea), e.g. using sprintf.

xt = get(gca,'XTick');
xtl = arrayfun(@(x)sprintf('%d\\circE',x),xt,'UniformOutput',false);
set(gca,'XTickLabel',xtl);
