I don't think there's any predefined functionality for that.  Here's a
suggestion for a way you could implement it.  

Evaluate the following, load the file with the ISO dates in a buffer and
do `M-x jh-iso-to-chinese', which will put the Chinese dates in another

(defun jh-iso-to-chinese ()
  (goto-char (point-min))
  (while (re-search-forward 
"^\\([[:digit:]]\\{4\\}\\)\\([[:digit:]]\\{2\\}\\)\\([[:digit:]]\\{2\\}\\)" nil 
    (let ((str (format "%s\n" (calendar-chinese-date-string 
                               (mapcar 'string-to-int 
                                       (list (match-string 1) 
                                             (match-string 2) 
                                             (match-string 3)))))))
    (with-current-buffer (get-buffer-create "*chinese output*")
      (insert str))))
  (switch-to-buffer "*chinese output*"))
