Check `doveadm pw -h` output. If it prints "[-t hash]", you can do
something like:

doveadm pw -t '{SHA256-CRYPT}$5$rounds=1000$0123456789abcdef$K/DksR0DT01hGc8g/kt9McEgrbFMKi9qrb1jehe7hn4'
Enter password to verify: 08/15!test~4711

{SHA256-CRYPT}$5$rounds=1000$0123456789abcdef$K/DksR0DT01hGc8g/kt9McEgrbFMKi9qrb1jehe7hn4 (verified)
