FWIW: A colleague in Iran was able to connect to a server in the US

Iranian government is not blocking TLS/HTTPS per se, but just port
443. So in principle, if there were just some HTTPS proxies using
non-standard ports, then people would be able to get out. At least
until (1) the addresses of the proxies become known to the regime, or
(2) they start blocking cross-border TLS altogether.
Or applications (and providers) knew how to use SRV records...
