You can simply enter the U-value instead of using the layers.  One word of caution: DOE-2 calculates the exterior wall film resistance based on the weather data wind speed.  So the U-value you enter should not include that exterior film resistance.  

The alternate is to add all but 1 of your layers as materials to get the wall heat capacity then match the overall U-value by specifying the remaining layer resistance.  

Either way, the summary table at the bottom of the LV-D report gives you the wall U-value with ext. film resistance.
