Documentation says:
MATLAB® Compiler™ supports the full MATLAB language and almost all toolboxes based on MATLAB except:
  • Most of the prebuilt graphical user interfaces included in MATLAB and its companion toolboxes.
I assume that profile belongs to the exceptions

Seems like ismcc() can be used for a sort of conditional compilation. Inspired by Test if code is running during compilation process (using mcc) - MATLAB ismcc - MathWorks Nordic:
if ~(ismcc || isdeployed)
profile off;
if isequal(profile_mode, 'on')
profile on;

Per is correct. The profiler is not currently supported by the compiler. However the primary reason for this is that there have been few if any requests for support and we are not sure what a valid use case would be. In addition only command access would be availible (profile('info') not the viewer). If you have a strong need for this and are willing to work it through I suggest contacting support.
