The tubes are pressed in.

Why do you want to remove them?

Oil in the tube and changing the top seals didn't help,

There is most likely a tool to pull them out but can't find it.

Before you attempt anything. Suggest obtaining a replacement tube as could damage the current one when removing it. Toyota doesn't list the tube.

Might try sealing the tube you have. This by cleaning the area around the tube with spray solvent and a tooth brush, then allowing to dry. Then apply a suitable epoxy around the circumference of the tube were it meets the head.
