Uh... Why would you give anyone that is dehydrated anything but water? -Salt does not hydrate the body. Only water (H2O) will hydrate the body. Salt will help retain water, but only if you're actually drinking water, which in the context of the question is not the case. -If you're referring to a salt water solution, then I wouldn't recommend anyone drink it whether they were dehydrated or not. Drinking only salt water would result in death from dehydration. So, no in both cases.
