Question about Lutron ELECTRONICS MAW-600H-LA SMART DIMMER
If each fixture has an individual transformer, the chace is that they are electronic (about the size of a matchbox car) If so, you have the wrong dimmer installed. You will need to install a MAELV (Electronic Low Voltage) Dimmer. The regular dimmers are set up for Magnetic Low Voltage and incandescent which work differently. http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/362219.pdf
Here is a link to the difference in how they work. Also, if they are a Low Wattage light like an LED, the dimmer may not have enough resistance to bleed off the excess voltage. The MAW-600 has a minimum load of either 25 or 40 watts. If you are operating LED's you may also need a Low Wattage Interface to act as a simulated load that wires in series with your lights.

If it gets too anoying until you get the proper dimmer, you can switch the Air Gap switch at the bottom to the off position. This completely disconnects the power to the load side of the dimmer.

I agree with mikeb's assessment that they're probably electronic low-voltage. The additional benefit of the ELV dimmers (in this case - as most people don't see this as a benefit) is that the dimmer contains a neutral connection. That neutral connection will dump that leakage current back to the breaker without feeding it to the load.
