no,  sorry.  they need to be integers.
if you need non integers you can create a file that contains all of the
strings you need.  your batch script would use the ${PBS_ARRAYID} value to
look up the string on a particular line of the file

  -t X-Y is a range and torque tries to expand it assuming X and Y are
integers and Y > X.
