    In Spanish, ojalá can be used in cases like:

    (1a) Ojalá (que) llueva. “I hope it rains”

    (1b) Ojalá (que) haya llovido. “I hope it rained.”

    (2a) Ojalá (que) lloviera. “I wish it would rain.”

    (2b) Ojalá (que) hubiera llovido. “I wish it had rained.”

    In Portuguese, can any of the following be used the same way? --- oxalá…, oxalá que…, que…, tomara que…?

    Pode, mas pelo menos no Brasil, o "tomara" é mais usado que o "oxalá".
