I tried to convert a mesh, generated in ICEM with approx. 5.5 Mio. tet cells

Overall number of cells of each type:
      hexahedra:     0
      prisms:        0
      wedges:        0
      pyramids:      0
      tet wedges:    0
      tetrahedra:    5465917
      polyhedra:     0
after running the polyDualMesh command I got approx. 21.9 Mio. hex cells, not one poly cell. I tried different angles (60 75 90) always with the same result.

Overall number of cells of each type:
      hexahedra:     21863668
      prisms:        0
      wedges:        0
      pyramids:      0
      tet wedges:    0
      tetrahedra:    0
      polyhedra:     0
Anyone an idea?

polyDualMesh (PDM) can be picky sometimes. You really need to have a high-quality tet mesh for PDM to work reliably. This also means it must be a tet mesh without Delaunay violations (slide 15). Without knowing more about your mesh, you will just be left with guesses or people throwing links to the forum like these:

maybe you can run a
checkMesh -allGeometry -allTopology
in your imported mesh to the OpenFOAM case for more information and/or provide your mesh.
