We don't know the exact license of the enterprise Odoo, but by necessity
it has to contain a clause that prevents redistribution. AGPL by
definition is only compatible with code that it is allowed to 'infect',
so that the whole body of code can be redistributed under the terms of
the AGPL itself. Therefore, code that falls under the one license cannot
be combined with the other.
