A good start. To draw a dotted line you just have to stroke with a dotted line style.

All steps together:
1. Type your text.
2. Select Layer/Text to path.
3. In the Layers tab hide the text layer and select the layer you want your dotted lines on.
4. In the Path tab select the newly created path.
5. Go to Edit/Stroke path. Select 'Stroke line', check 'Solid color', click 'Line style', from the Dash presets listbox select 'Dense dots' for instance.

You're done.
