Has anyone used Sapele wood for a pipe. If not, does anyone know if sapele wood is toxic and can't be use to make a tobacco pipe?

You don't want to use it for a pipe.

http://www.wood-database.com/wood-artic ... -toxicity/
Doesn't appear to be particularly toxic, but these data bases are mainly for a wood worker who has skin contact and who might inhale or ingest dust.
Firing up tobacco and puffing on the combination of tobacco smoke and Sapele combustion products might be a different story.
My best advice would be to stick with materials that are known to give a good smoke with relative safety (considering that tobacco is chock full of chemicals that can do you harm- nicotine alone is a class 6 {among the most toxic substances known}toxin)
Briar is beautiful, workable, fire resistant and safe (enough) , it is also available.
