Do the writers of the Holy Books ever quote Jewish fables as though they were actual historical events?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

1 Timothy 1:4 – Neither give heed to fables... which minister questions rather than godly edifying.

2 Timothy 4:4 – And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2 Peter 1:16 – For we have not followed cunningly devised fables when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

Al-Anfal 8:31 – And when our revelations are recited to them they say... “This is nothing but fables of the men of old.”

Note: For more accusations of using fables see: En’am 6:25, Nahl 16:24, Mu’minun 23:83, Furkan 25:4-5, An-Naml 27:68, Akhaf 46:17, Kalem 68:15 & Mutaffifin 83:13.
