Is it possible to move or copy metadata presets to another location such as Dropbox or a network drive and have Lightroom work off of that drive?

If you're sharing a catalog via Dropbox or an external drive, consider using the option Preferences > Presets > Store Presets With This Catalog.

 

Alternatively, you could try a symbolic link from the folder where LR expects to find the presets to the actual folder where you've placed them. Symbolic links work for other LR internal folders, but I don't recall seeing anyone report that they work for presets.   So let us know if it works for you.
