T is a datetime (seconds from 1970.) ENUM_DAY_OF_WEEK is an enumeration (SUNDAY, etc.) You can't cast one to the other.

Use TimeDayOfWeek

Here's how I would do it...

#include <Tools\DateTime.mqh>
void OnStart()
{
   datetime timeC[];
   ArraySetAsSeries(timeC,true);
   CopyTime(_Symbol,PERIOD_D1,0,1000,timeC); 
   CDateTime time;
   time.DateTime(timeC[500]);
   printf("%s is a %s",TimeToString(time.DateTime(),TIME_DATE),time.DayName());
}
