Actually, it handles it just fine.  The problem is that call-process and
start-process both use the same coding system to encode arguments and to
encode the data sent via stdin to the process, whereas you want them to
be distinct.
If you want them to be distinct, then you need to manually encode your
arguments before passing them to call-process.

I.e. the bug with hexl-mode is in hexl.el.  Please report it separately
indicating how to reproduce the problem (I don't know how to "applying
`hexl-mode' to UTF-16 texts").
