Yes you can use those, there is no limitation on what characters you can use.

Re: Pre-Shared key

Hi, I just experienced a problem the may be related to these special characters. I didn't test fully so take this advice with a bit of caution: Under ASA 7.23 OS and possible other OS versions, using special characters in keys causes the key to become deformed, or invalid (don't know which). I upgraded to OS 8.X, re-entered the pre-shared key with special characters and it worked.
