You can create a cascading select as a type of custom field. Which you can then use on your Service Desk portal.

To do so, go to custom fields (you need admin permission for that) and add a cascading select field where you define the categories and their sub-categories.  Then go to the service desk project and map the field on to the portal, like the other fields.
