I'd actually be interested in this too as I am currently using imagesc(X) for plotting stuff.
I found that if you go to the figure editor and right click on the colorbar, you can manually adjust it by scrolling on the bar. But, as with anything you edit post-process you need to do it every time.

Try this:
lut(1:8) = 0;
lut(8:23) = 16;
lut(24:39) = 32;
% and so on....
% To convert
outImage = intlut(inputImage, lut);

You had mistakes in your code. LUT wasn't uint8 and didn't have 256 elements. Try this:
clc; % Clear the command window.
close all; % Close all figures (except those of imtool.)
imtool close all; % Close all imtool figures if you have the Image Processing Toolbox.
clear; % Erase all existing variables. Or clearvars if you want.
workspace; % Make sure the workspace panel is showing.
format long g;
format compact;
fontSize = 20;
% Read in standard demo image;
grayImage = imread('cameraman.tif');
% Display the original gray scale image.
subplot(1, 2, 1);
imshow(grayImage, []);
title('Original Grayscale Image', 'FontSize', fontSize);
% Enlarge figure to full screen.
set(gcf, 'Units', 'Normalized', 'OuterPosition', [0 0 1 1]);
% Give a name to the title bar.
set(gcf, 'Name', 'Demo by ImageAnalyst', 'NumberTitle', 'Off')
LUT(1:8) = 0;
LUT(8:23) = 16;
LUT(24:39) = 32;
LUT(40:55) = 48;
LUT(56:71) = 64;
LUT(72:87) = 80;
LUT(88:103) = 96;
LUT(104:119) = 112;
LUT(120:135) = 128;
LUT(136:151) = 144;
LUT(152:167) = 160;
LUT(168:183) = 176;
LUT(184:199) = 192;
LUT(200:215) = 208;
LUT(216:231) = 224;
LUT(232:247) = 240;
LUT(248:256) = 255;
LUT = uint8(LUT);
% To convert
quantizedImage = intlut(grayImage, LUT);
% Display the original gray scale image.
subplot(1, 2, 2);
imshow(quantizedImage, []);
title('Quantized Image', 'FontSize', fontSize);
