Yes they did. Turbos and superchargers were both very prevalent on many WWII aircraft engines.
They were used so much for aircraft because these engines needed so much more air intake(because of the altitudes they flew at) than they could get in there by themselves, so they needed a lot of forced induction help.
WWII aircraft engines also used alky/water injection fairly frequently, but I forget which planes had it.
