Can you grow dwarf lemon trees in containers in Michigan? I’m concerned that there wouldn’t be enough light. Thanks.

You can, and there won't be enough light... But you can do as I do and use horticultural grade lighting. I have many citrus and fruits indoors that do not survive in my area thanks to good lighting.

LED can be purchased cheaply, and now are the technology of choice. Make sure when looking at lights, you choose about 100 watts actual draw per tree. Most LED panels will give you a number of equivalence. The actual draw is usually a little more than half that number.
