Here’s a link with more explanation.
In versions after 12.4(6)T, the spoke-to-spoke traffic with NAT is supported. Take a look at this link for more information.
Here’s the important information from the link
In Cisco IOS Release 12.4(6)T or earlier, DMVPN spokes behind NAT will not participate in dynamic direct spoke-to-spoke tunnels. Any traffic to or from a spoke that is behind NAT will be forwarded using the DMVPN hub routers. DMVPN spokes that are not behind NAT in the same DMVPN network may create dynamic direct spoke-to-spoke tunnels between each other.
In Cisco IOS Release 12.4(6)T or later releases, DMVPN spokes behind NAT will participate in dynamic direct spoke-to-spoke tunnels. The spokes must be behind NAT boxes that are preforming NAT, not PAT. The NAT box must translate the spoke to the same outside NAT IP address for the spoke-spoke connections as the NAT box does for the spoke-hub connection. If there is more than one DMVPN spoke behind the same NAT box, then the NAT box must translate the DMVPN spokes to different outside NAT IP addresses. It is also likely that you may not be able to build a direct spoke-spoke tunnel between these spokes. If a spoke-spoke tunnel fails to form, then the spoke-spoke packets will continue to be forwarded via the spoke-hub-spoke path.
I tried this out in a Dynamips lab and it worked great.
Here is a diagram of the dynagen lab I created with the relevant config
