Yes, in the POI editor you can
You get to it by right-clicking the track waveform

You can also map buttons to do it
Just map cue_color + number + color
Like this:
cue_color 1 'blue'

Nother interesting option is using the script above in a pad page, if you use the hotcue pad page to set your hotcues

Then you can make a new pad page just like the existing one, but change the script from:
hot_cue 1
hot_cue 2
hot_cue 3
...and so on - to the same script, but with a color script added, like
hot_cue 1 & cue_color 1 'blue'
hot_cue 2 & cue_color 2 'red'
hot_cue 3 & cue_color 3 'green'

Then when you set hotcues using the new pad page they will automatically get the matching color:

You can ofcourse do the same to the mapping behind the hotcue buttons on your controller, so they always also set a color
