You shouldn't be worrying about hub choice WRT chainline. If it's a prebuilt wheel and the outer cog seems to close to the frame you might want to remove the cogset and see if there's a spacer behind it I suppose, but other than that...
The main concern chainline-wise centers around crankset and BB interaction.
EDIT: interesting that the catalog page for the crankset says 110/113 mm BB. This may not apply to your cranks but I tried my old Sugino 700 cranks on a 113mm UN54 and it was a tad too far outboard. A 110mm UN54 worked great, however.
