Jeremy: as far as I know, the ODE function only accepts vectors as input. So you will have to reshape your matrix S into a vector.

This should work:
function [dP] = fun_ric(t,Pin)

% reshape input
P = reshape(Pin,2,2);

% system matrices
A=[0 1;0 -2.972];
Q=[(1/(pi^2)) 0;0 30];
Ri = R^-1;

% Ricatti equation:
dPt = A'*P+P*A+Q-P*B*Ri*B'*P;

% reshape
dP = reshape(dPt,4,1);

%% Test ricatti
clear all, close all, clc

%% ode params
P0 = zeros(2);
tspan = [0 2];

%% simulate
[t, P] = ode45('fun_ric',tspan,P0);

% P matrix (comparable with: P=care(A,B,Q,R))
Ptot = reshape(P(end,:),2,2)


If you compare the outcome of 'care' it will be the same as for Ptot when you simulate long enough (100 sec).
