No, I just tried it. The option is disabled.
I'll file a feature request here:
Brief title for your desired feature:
Dynamic Linking with text
How would you like the feature to work?
The ability for text created in Premiere Titler
to be sent from a Premiere Timeline to an
After Effects Composition via Dynamic Link.
Why is this feature important to you?
I do all of my finished titling in Ae, and would like to
be able to transfer rough-cut text from Pr for compositing

Great idea. +1.
Copy & paste the request to your (and my) heart's delight!
I can see that. Yes. However .....
I wonder if it might be better to have an intermediate format - Photoshop PSD - for this purpose. If when a title from Premiere Pro was brought over into Ae with any method, Dynamic Link, copy and paste, open sequence in Ae... any method, it would appear as a Photoshop file. I miss the old days of separate files for titles because we could write little programs to modify them a lot easier. What if the native format of a title was actually a Photoshop file if we so chose that in the Premiere Pro Preferences? That would solve a LOT of problems wouldn't it? Kind of a digital intermediate for titles?
It is my opinion that Photoshop (with its timeline) should be the basis for the title program anyway. What if that was available as an option?
Then titles would not only come over as text, but you could animate the layers in both Pr and Ae.
A .psd intermediate could work if that's the only way
to port text from Pr to Ae.
I'm not really a Ps user, and I don't compose any titles there.
I just want my vector font translated from Pr into an Ae comp...
even if it doesn't retain scale, position etc. as defined in Pr Timeline.
I just tried something. You can send an adjustment layer or transparent video to After Effects and create your text from scratch there.
Yeah... that's kinda what I already do with roughed-in text from Pr:
DL comp in Ae:
This method sends an empty, black solid layer to Ae (with keyframes)
that I will then use as a timing and keyframe placeholder.
But the problem is not sending at least the font / text content from Pr
to Ae... and having to start over from scratch composing the text in Ae.
