Based on testing the following restrictions need to be documented):

ISE CLI username password can be configure with any english alphanumeric and the following special characters: !#&'()*+-./:;=@[]^_{}~
The following characters can be used but need to be escaped (add "\" in front): , (comma) % (percent)
Not working and should not be used for the CLI password:  < > (less/more than) | (Vertical bar - pipe) \ (backslash) " (double quote) ` (grave accent) ? (question mark) $ (dollar)
ASCII Control and extended characters are not supported.

This should be documented in the three guides (install, admin and CLI reference) for all currently supported versions: 2.2, 2.4, 2.6 and 2.7.

Conditions:
CLI admin password.
