I expect they would let you pay in dollars but you may need advice from someone else here. My driver wouldn't accept a penny from me. Keep in mind that I am no longer a sweet young thing, but my driver decided to give me a bit of a tour yet refused to accept my money. This is one of my fondest memories of Argentina.
In any case, there are bank machines all over the place. Paying in the local currency is normally better for everyone.
By the way, while in Buenos Aires always ask for the cash price when purchasing something. "En efectivo". They always quote the credit card price but take 10% off for cash.
I love Buenos Aires!
