Yes, I don't know if this is the correct way, but it seems to work for

(standard-display-ascii ?\015 "")

and to turn it on again:

(standard-display-ascii ?\015 "^M") ;; Or whatever characters 
                                    ;; you want to be seen

One time when I tried the first expression above and navigated to a
point ín the buffer where there were a ASCII 13 character, emacs
freezed, and I mean a major freeze. So test this a couple of times
before you try it in a critical situation with lot of unsaved buffers.
