This dimmer was not made to dim a load smaller than 40VA. That halogen bulb would only have been 20VA or so.
I think that when your bulb burnt out, the dimmer over-volted the transformer and smoked it. That said, I think you have a fixture problem and, possibly, a switch problem, too.

The Lutron Maestro dimmer isn't rated or designed to operate low voltage lighting as it is a 120 V-AC rated electronic dimmer. You should either install a standard low voltage ON/OFF switch on this installation or obtain a dimmer rated for use on low voltage lights.
You need special low voltage dimmer designed for use on the low voltage pucks lights you have installed. Usually the low voltage is either 12, 24, or 36 volts, depending on the manufacturer of your particular light set. Once the correct dimmer is in place, the problem with the flickering and pulsing of the lights, should cease.
If you still are having this problem and you can't find a low voltage dimmer, you can contact the maker of your low voltage light kit and they can provide you with an acceptable dimmer option for your lights.
Most Home Depot and Lowe's carry the low voltage puck light kits, and usually have accessories for these lights, including dimmer switches that will work with them.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
PS: I found this old, unanswered question and wanted to provide a solution to close out the problem and clear the question from the site.

Because the switches are relatively inexpensive, there aren't kits to repair them when they fail mechanically. Your best bet is to get an exact replacement from a Home Depot or such, turn off the breaker switch, and rewire it exactly as it was, using wire nuts and tape.

If you have followed the programming instructions, the only thing that might be wrong would be the power wire and switch leg wire may be installed on the wrong screws on the back of the device. Be sure that the wire bringing power "INTO" the box is connected to the "Black" screw on the dimmer and the wire going "OUT" to the light fixture is on the "Gold" or "Brass" colored. If these are backwards the dimmer will probably work, but the IR would not. If you are positive it's wired correctly and the IR remote still won't sync up, call the 800 number at the end of the attached video for Lutron Technical Support. Good Luck!

something is messed up for sure... two solutions.... disconnect outlet and cap wires.. or open up both boxes and see where / how they they wired the outlet into the fan/ light control and disconnect it there and then pick up power for the outlet from the black /white wires BEFORE the dimmer control
