Yes, you can score dose eq for ions! But not using AUXSCORE, because no
conversion coefficients are available.
This is how it can be done (Note to the list of generalised particles,
Chap. 5.1):

  (6) "Dose equivalent" is computed using various sets of conversion
      coefficients (see AUXSCORE for details) converting particle fluences
      into Ambient Dose equivalent or Effective Dose. Dose Equivalent of
      particles for which conversion coefficients are not available, typically
      heavy ions, can be calculated by scoring generalised particle DOSEQLET.
