I had a similar situation with an aluminum frame and was able fix it. Assuming that the dent is at the top and inwards, first use a steel drift and hammer from the inside to reverse the dent as much as possible. Next, use a Dremel tool with a grinding wheel to smooth out the surface where the top headset cup is installed. On mine you can't even tell there was a dent from the outside.
