Leicester took a lead at half time, with Toby Flood overcoming the tricky conditions to kick three penalties, while Lionel Beauxis and Luke McAlister missed the same number for the visitors.
Toulouse got themselves back in to the match early in the second half with a Yoann Huget try, but the weather meant that Beauxis was unable to complete the conversion.
Tigers were without Flood for 10 minutes towards the end of the match, as the fly half was sin-binned for a deliberate knock-on.
The win ensures that Leicester finish top of their pool and progress to the quarter-final stage of the competition.
