How is it that the m4/3 sensors are "as good as" the APS-c ones?

So the general consensus seems to be that the format can compete well with APS-C quality.. presumably this has a lot to do with modern technology, new methods, etc.

My question is, what is the secret that allows the m4/3 to 'catch up' some of the inherent advantage of APS-C due to the larger sensor? Shouldn't mirrorless APS-C cameras be able to realise the same steps up?

It's nice that there is an appealing range of lens for the smaller format, but couldn't, for the sake of argument, an APS sensor be used instead, possibly even with a m4/3 mount at the appropriate relative distance, thereby maintaining the lens size-weight advantage of the mirrorless design, while at the same time boosting IQ from the larger sensor?

They're not better. They never have been . Which is why Olympus' DSLRs'
were a colossal failure.
All of Nikon's DSLRs rate higher, even their entry level . In fact the last generation was higher rated than the best m4/3 has to offer now.
