Is it okay to fight dirty? (Poke the eyes, strike the groin, etc)?

You are legally obligated to using the least amount of force that's necessary to end a clear and present danger. Crippling and maiming techniques fall into the "lethal force" category in a lot of jurisdictions, so unless you can convince a jury that you were afraid for your life, it would be hard to justify using some of those techniques.
Frankly, a good knockout punch has the same result (ending a threat) without a lot of the legal complications.
It's not that certain techniques are "dirty" (really no such thing outside of a sport contest) but they might not be appropriate to use, depending on the circumstances.
And frankly, strikes to the groin are overrated.

Fighting for your life, sure; in a point-sparring TKD match, no.

Only if your parents tell you that it's ok.
