Once you are put into the "Downed State", will damage reduction from toughness still apply?

Since toughness is added to armour at a rate of 100% (that is, 1 toughness = 1 armour) - this question is actually "does armour work while in a downed state".

The answer to this is yes - armour will mitigate its usual percentage of incoming damage while you're in a downed state.

It is worth noting that armour does not mitigate condition damage, only direct damage, so if you're poisoned or bleeding it won't help you much but if you have a Risen hitting on you it will.
