Is there a way to add a custom background layer using shapefiles (e.g. OS BoundaryLine) in iD?

No. iD is aimed at being an easy-to-use editor for anyone to use without having to install extra software or learn too many new concepts. As such, advanced features like custom background layers haven't been included in the initial release.

iD is open source software, so if you'd like a version that has this feature, you could add it yourself or persuade/pay/threaten someone to do it for you.
