While under a boil water advisory, can dishes safely be washed in a dishwasher that has a high heat rinse setting (155°F)?

Yes, you can use a dishwasher to safely wash your dishes while under a boil water advisory.  The high water temperature and the strong detergent used in dishwashers, as well as the dry cycle, should kill any disease-causing organisms.
