Would it be safe to put a 15 pound weighted blanket in the dryer?
The washing instructions say that it is safe to machine wash and dry, but I can't help thinking that something so heavy would damage a tumble dryer.
Would it be safe, or would it damage the dryer?

I would suggest taking it to a local laundromat if there are any worries. The equipment there is built for industrial use and could handle the weight. A small or normal sized dryer may struggle. It might put stress on the belt. Overall wash it alone to avoid extra weight.

depends on what the maximum capacity of the dryer is

Take it to a washerteria/commercial washer and wash it in their machines. In the past we have washed large paint tarps/drop clothes in those machines and dryers without a problem. Nothing as dirty or heavier than a big drop cloth, unless it would be a big tent/awing.

If your dryer was built before the 2000's (belt driven) you can put 50 lbs. in it.

You would be surprised what wet clothing weighs. If it says what it says, then it won't damage it. Put it in alone.
