Or do you mean you just want macros in you dag submit, just like you can in regular submit files?  The expansion of macros is a capability of condor_submit, but not condor_submit_dag.  But something you could easily do, since condor_submit_dag just makes a submit file for condor_submit, is run condor_submit_dag with the -no_run option.  Then edit the resulting submit file, adding the use of macros to your hearts content.  :)
