You could break up the belt into many smaller sections and then join them together to make a chain. It would take long but I think it's the only way to do it. Here is a really good link that shows how to create a chain mechanism.

I also have it summarised in the word doc if you don't have time to go through all the videos

To my knowledge, belt cannot be simulated in CATIA. Mostly in IDEAS it may work. Share if you crack it down.
