This was once true, but they traded in their NeXT machines some time ago.
Besides, NeXT used a variant of gcc, which was I believe the origin of the
objective-C compiler module for gcc. Currently Carmack appears to use
MacOS and NT.

Wolfenstein - Borland Turbo C
Doom - Watcom C
Quake - gcc
Quake II - Microsoft Visual C
Quake III - different compiler for each platform, it seems.

They appear to like changing compiler for each project.
