Lets see here. Arceus's Multitype changes it's type to the held plate, in this case, Electric. Thunderbolt is an Electric type move, and Arceus's type and Thunderbolt's type match up.

In Short

Yes, Arceus would gain STAB if it has the Zap Plate and uses Thunderbolt.

Although you wouldn't want to use Thunderbolt.
