You can't put a variable in the marker text, but you can semi-automate
such changes by using IXGen (http://www.fsatools.com/). 

With IXGen, you can generate a list of all the index markers and their
text. Then, you can use Find/Replace to change all the date strings.
Finally, you click a button to "reapply" the edited marker list to the
doc from which it was generated. This way, you're updating the marker
text, not the generated index.
