Try cat() to stack the gray scale image into 3 slices (color channels):
rgbImage = cat(3, grayImage, grayImage, grayImage);
It will be an RGB image though the only colors will be gray since there is no difference between the three different color channels. It will be a 3-D image with the z-direction (third index) being the color channel index.

Alternative to using cat(), the same can also be done a couple other ways.
You can use repmat()
rgbpict = repmat(graypict,[1 1 3]);
... or you can even use basic indexing:
rgbpict = graypict(:,:,[1 1 1]);
