Currently I am using a
UITabBarController in my iPad application in the master view of a
UISplitViewController. However, in my detail view, there is a
UIToolbar, and the
UITabBar looks out of place. Is there any alternative?

Hmm... are you talking about the top or the bottom tab bars in the detailed view?
With the top I would consider removing the "edit" button in the master view.
If you find another way to offer that functionality (which I assume is multi-delete and rearrange), then the top bar might look as "one" unit.
But you'll have to mock it up - not sure it'll look good.
The bottom bar bothers me personally a bit more... I'm gonna ask the same question again - do you really need it? Will you just have one command there? What does "home" do anyway? Or is it just a place holder?
Tab Bars don't behave nice in a split view. But i've done the inverse with great success. A split view for each tab. You can see screenshots of my implementation at TexLege.com
For me, the tab bar is the root, and the split views switch out to contain the primary features of the app...
