Ok, so dired is going to decode the output of ls by utf-8.

No, Emacs just tries to encode \344 by utf-8 and correctly
declared that it is not encodable by utf-8.

I think that is your case (latin-9 instead of latin-1).

How about making dired decode the filename part by
file-name-coding-system and the rest part by
default-process-coding-system?

By the way,

Please try to load ucs-normalize and set
file-name-coding-system to utf-8-hfs.  You should see file
names correctly by precomposed characters as "ä".
