You can't slow-down the dialing within muLinux setup. The dialing is
performed to modem itself. muLinux only send the ATDT<number> command.

My modem manual report other available syntax for the ATD command, but
I do not know if they suite for you.

Try first to call with miterm:

                # miterm -l /dev/modem
                # atz
                # atx3
                # atdt<nummber>
