As it is possible to program a ATtiny45 using Arduino as ISP Programmer, is there a way to backup an ATtiny45 program to a .hex file using Arduino?

    You'll have to use the commandline for that. Inside the arduino program folder there is another executable called avrdude. You need to call something like avrdude -pattiny45 -cstk500v1 -Uflash:r:filename.hex:i – Gerben Oct 9 '14 at 16:27

Assuming the lock bits on the device haven't been set, sure. Simply prepare the Arduino for ArduinoISP, hook up the ATtiny45, and perform a read using AVRDUDE instead of a write (-U flash:r:foo.hex:i).
