Is there a way to utilize the Salesforce OOTB connector while using the client_credentials grant type?

The OOB connector does provide the option to define CLIENT_ID and secret value. This is for Client credentials and you can define the values in the same.

hi @SB yes but the OOB connector also requires us to provide the REFRESH_TOKEN which is not provided with the credential flow in Salesforce.

You can refer the below documentation. As part of the setup, the steps you need to perform on salesforce end does show how you will get the refresh token value from url. In case you are not using this setup, then you will have to use REST connector.
