Chase.
The pip count is the move value & they can trade pips.

Along that lines:

And - not sure whether those fit the bill - Quarriors! and Button Men (Button Men: Beat People Up)

I'm not too familiar with Quantum but Cavern Tavern uses dice similar to how a worker placement game uses workers

Quarriors!/Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men are, but probably not how you are thinking.

It can play 2, but is better with 3 or 4.

Maybe a 5 year old list where nothing even semi current is mentioned is the best link. Come to think of it not really what the op was asking for anyway.

Not sure if this is what you were going for, but Roll For the Galaxy uses the dice for workers and is great fun with two - though it technically works better with three or four.

A game I recall reading about, Checkers 'N Dice, was patented in 1990. It doesn't appear to have a BGG page! It seems to have vanished but the patent, rules, and diagram can be seen here:
https://www.google.com/patents/US4902021

From the description:


Each player starts the game with four sets of checkers numbered from one through six giving said player a total of 24 checkers. This is double the number of checkers used on a standard checkerboard. Consequently, a larger checkerboard is incorporated into this board game having 144 checkered squares.

Moves are made by first throwing the dice. The player then moves two checkers that match the two numbers on the thrown dice. In the event that a double number is thrown he has the choice of moving either one or two of these same numbered checkers, but he is not allowed to move one checker two places.

Blueprints - its an underrated dice drafting game. Plays better with 3 or 4 but works with 2. Not so much "units" but more workers.

In Panamax, the dice represent units of cargo in varying values and ownerships (colors). It can be played as a 2-player game, but is best with four.
 


A game that plays well with 2-players is Pandemic: The Cure, where dice represent units of disease, and each disease is represented by a different color.
