Yes you should be able to specify surface vertexes in the IDF so that a hip roof is being modeled. I don't know how you would do this exactly with floorplan but E+ can definitely model hip roofs.

Could you please give an example on how to do that?

Look up BuildingSurface:Detailed and look at the XYZ vertex coordinates.
