I don't know about Jains, but there is a book with the title: "Buddhism as presented by the Brahmanical systems", by Chitrarekha V. Kher. I have not read it yet, but it seems to give informations about the Hindu views of Buddhism.
Mettāya,

There is no mention of Buddha in jain texts, they do however mention sariputta and i think moggallana as well
