Well, you can telnet into your server (baaaaaaad idea. Use ssh). If you can then run dosemu from that command prompt and get a game going, then yes, I don't see why it would be a problem. On the other hand, it would have to be a text-based game for obvious reasons.

So the question piqued my interest and I searched around a bit. And it looks like I need to retract the above. All DOS emulators for Linux that I found were X programs. So you can telnet in, get a prompt, start a program, but that program will want to open a new window, and they you're SOL.

There might be alternatives, but maybe you should elaborate a bit more on what you're trying to accomplish and why.

Cygwin + X client + ssh + port tunneling ;)
