I have painted an exterior door with exterior low luster latex paint. It is showing scuff marks. Can I add anything to make the paint more glossy or durable before I continue painting other doors?

Following the advice that glossy surfaces tend to show scuffs more than low lusters I would recommend maybe a kick plate for the lower portion of your door. Other than that, you will need to switch to an alkyd type finish for added durability.
