Does charging a rental car on Amex cover the (Collision Damage Waiver)CDW in Belize? I know it does in the States but need to check coverage in Belize for a SUV. I am calling my auto insurance company to make sure liability is covered for the rental.

Call AmEx. But even with credit card coverage, some rental places and certain vehicles require you to purchase their own CDW (mandatory)

Yes, Amex covers CDW in Belize (though it may not cover all types of vehicles or in certain areas, such as off-road conditions -- call Amex BEFORE you get to Belize to confirm these exceptions).

If your car rental company REQUIRES you to buy CDW, find another rental company. Budget Belize, for example, is a good company that doesn't require you to take CDW. (If you buy CDW, Amex and other card coverage doesn't apply.)
