If you are talking about the creation date stored in the filesystem, then ExifTool can not set this date.  ExifTool can set only the file modification date (FileModifyDate).  The syntax is:

exiftool -filemodifydate="2010:03:31 10:52:30" FILE

to set the date, or

exiftool -filemodifydate+=1 FILE

to shift the date by 1 hour.
