The project structure of an AppBuilder project is different from that of a default Cordova project. You will need to modify your project's file structure to be able to open it in XCode. It might be easier to create a blank Cordova project in XCode and start copying the files from your AppBuilder project into it. Make sure you add all plugins (especially custom ones) to the project.
