It should be possible to burn an ISO to a CD-R with dd, because that's the normal program for writing an image file to a block device. It's how you make boot floppies from disk images; optical media shouldn't need a different program.
Audio CDs are generally written with a lot of options and details, and that does make a special program worthwhile. But the common case where you just write the thing shouldn't require anything dd doesn't already do.
