If an employee has access to stock images through the employer, is it OK to use them for his own personal projects or non-commercial use?
For example, if he makes his own app or creates a website, is it permissible to use these stock images in it?

Images are licensed to someone, in this case your employer. That doesn't mean that they are licensed to you.
This question really isn't different than asking if you can use your employer's copy of Office or Photoshop on your home computer because you "have access to it".
In other words, what you're suggesting is illegal.
