I wonder if such a die even exists and would be very expensive if it did. I would think that the original threads were cut on a lathe (or automatic screw machine). If you have a good spare lockring with the correct thread, file some notches in it like those in a die, clean up the burrs, then use it to chase the damaged threads on your hub. In fact, just an unmodified lockring with lots of lube and a bit of persuasion should straighten the threads if they're just deformed.
