or you can do the following:

***************************
#d;
sysuse auto;
lab var price "Total assets = \\\$10M";
logit  foreign price rep78 weight;
esttab using c:\temp\test.tex, title(Test for different effects at \\$2M, 
\\$10M, and \\$43M) replace label;
***************************

Stata uses the Dollar-sign  for globals and you need to escape the 
baskslash:
