First, the hook already takes %PATH% argument containing a list of paths to
be committed, so it is possible for the hook to display them along
with issues list.
Second, my thought was not to let the user enter his message in a dialog
displayed by the hook, but to let the hook pre-compose some message part
or template based on the selected issues.
After that, the user would see this template in standard commit dialog and
change/augment it as usual.

See TortoiseSVN -> Settings -> Hook Scripts and accompanying help.
And I wholeheartedly agree that command-line interface is easier than COM ;-)
