Is it still true that ActiveX can only be used in MS Windows and not Mac OS?. I can't read/manipulate excel files in my script when running the script on a Mac. I have no problems with the same script when running on a PC.

Yes, it is true, ActiveX is only supported for Windows. That script will not run on macOS. Note this is not MATLAB's limitation, rather Microsoft designed ActiveX to work on windows.
