I've put this in a /usr/bin/show-dialer.sh

qcop service send Dialer showDialer\(QString\) "$1"

Now I just need to create a desktop file with:
 Exec=show-dialer.sh "0123456789"
to run the dialer with the number ready to be dialed.

If you want to call directly a number you could use this "dial-number.sh":

qcop service send Dialer dial\(QString,QString\) "$1" "$1"

Using this script, the asked number will be called directly.
