If the only issue with your data is that it is not in the proper location, and not a jumbled mess, chances are you just need to define the coordinate system for the shapefile you created.
- Right-click on the shapefile created from AutoCAD
- Select 'Properties'
- Select the 'XY Coordinate System' tab
- Click the 'select' button and choose your Transverse Mercator GCS_WGS_1984 projection
After you set the coordinate system, your shapefiles should properly align.
As long as your data frame coordinate system does not match the coordinate system used within AutoCad, you have to define the projection of the transformed AutoCad file.
Best way is dmsteff89's solution.
As far as I know does AutoCad do not have the explizit terms of a coordinate system like GIS, like using a ellipsoid information for projection.
