Thanks for your answer,

my problem is a bit more complicated. Handling about 1000 variables and 
the corresponding differential equations in an Simplex loop requires 
that the program in each cycle handles the variables the Replacements etc.
In the meantime I found a solution myself. Declaring var as a list of 
{a,b} and not {a[t],b[t]} does the trick:

Clear[a, b, sol, dgln]
var = {a, b};
start = 0; end = 10; k = .08;
dgln = {a'[t] == -k*a[t], a[0] == 2,
         b'[t] ==  k*a[t], b[0] == 0};
sol = NDSolve[dgln, var, {t, start, end}][[1]];
Set @@@ sol
