I don't believe this is possible. The blackberry.io.dir.createDirectory() method only allows you to specify the path.
Digging into the code here:
C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS 22.214.171.124\bbwp\ext\blackberry.io.dir\src\Air\Directo
I see its simply calling into the createMethod from the flash.filesystem.File object, which is documented here:

The questions is, why hiding a folder and for whom? If you want to hide the folder to not beeing accessable try to add the folder in the applications app-directory. I think with the PlayBook APIs you can not access the folders of another app, isn't it or may I be wrong in this?

A reason I can think of off the top of my head to create a hidden folder would be to prevent images within it to show up in the files application.
I think Sacha did it in one of his betas of http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/10
Can you not just put a . in the folder name when you create it?

Thanks your response.
I want to create a hide folder which save image
Because I want to avoid the case which everyone use my playbook and delete my image.
See your respone so we have other way to protect our folder!!

Put your stuff in the location returned by blackberry.io.dir.appDirs. That's the folder only accessible by your app.
That should protect it from people sniffing around.
Also put a basic password on your PlayBook to prevent that.
