You may use RTC to version control RPE templates by checking them into RTC workspace.

You may associate work item to the imported template in RTC and include comments regarding the version.

However the format of the templates being in .dta format you may not be able to make any changes to these files within RTC nor compare the files.

That is right. If you are looking for comparing 2 .dta files or see what has changed in a specific version of RPE template, that is something not supported currently. This might be implemented in future releases.
You can have .dta files in RTC under source control. But that would be like any other binary file - each time you have to overwrite the .dta file, you cannot merge the changes made.
