Our HR says that because I’m a PhD candidate and my wife is main Tier 4 applicant they are having difficulty applying a code for visa on a points base system for dependant visa to tier 2
The only relevant code is the job code from the Codes of Practice on skilled work. It confirms that the job is at the required minimum level of skill (RQF level 6) and salary (depends on job) for Tier 2 sponsorship. It is nothing to do with the applicant's immigration status.

Do they maybe think that because you happen to have a PhD, you can only do jobs listed in Table 1 "Occupational skilled to PhD level"? If so, that is nonsense. You are not restricted to jobs at PhD level, and moreover someone does not need a PhD to do a "PhD level" job anyway. Those descriptors are about the skill level of the job, not the education level of the candidate.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.
