That lens should be in the standard 16:9 (1.78:1) anamorphic ratio.

Like you said, the problem is that QT doesn't know it's anamorphic video since there is no flag in the signal, so you have to convert it "manually" so to speak.
I don't know about QT pro, but in FCP / FCE you can squeeze it to 16:9 by turning the timeline's anamorphic mark on, OR, in the clip's motion tab (in FCP that is) using the distort parameter. The correct number % is 33.33 for 16:9.

If you don't have access to FCP or FCE, you should be able to do the conversion in MPEG streamclip too. There's a preview in that program that is very handy.

I don't know if iDVD or DVD SP are smart enough to do the correction. If there's a preview, you can see if it does by turning on the 16:9 aspect ratio.
