That capability is already provided. Insert your ToC. Then, in the Text Styles panel, look for style TOC 1: Heading 1 and edit it. In the Tab Stops section, click on the tab stop leader field (circled in red below) and choose the leader you want, or for more choices click on the "..." icon.

Thanks Walt! Odd that it's buried in the TOC style rather than accessible through tab settings but this will work for my TOC. I will figure out how to do it for non-TOC use from there.

You can set it in the Tab Stops area of the Paragraph panel.

Find the tab stop in the list and select a leader using the rightmost popup menu on that line.  If you want something other than the "normal" ones, set it to "Tab stop leader character" and click the "..." between that popup and the circled "X".  In the resulting popup change the field labeled "Character".

For uses other than TOCs, it would be in the tab stops section of the paragraph style that you're using, or directly in the Paragraph panel (click on the icon marked below to open the full details for the tab stop (or to create a new one):

Or, if using Text Rulers, you can right-click in the ruler to set a tab stop, then set the leader characteristics there:
