Unfortunately you are right - the extended ACLs are not preserved with tar command.
The bug is filed for future release.

Perhaps a workaround for now would be to do manually in the source before conversion:
find / -maxdepth 1 -type d | egrep -v '^/(dev|proc|sys|tmp|run|)$' | getfacl --recursive --absolute-names --skip-base - | gzip > fs.acl.gz
And after conversion in the resulted machine:
zcat fs.acl.gz | setfacl --restore=- && rm fs.acl.gz
