Hmmm, the audio guy has given you an aaf and separate wave files? Not sure that will work. Avid would typically be building its data base around clips that are wrapped in MXF wrappers.

Have you tried selecting batch re-importing on the sequence, and pointing it to those wave files? From there Avid may be able to create the proper mxfs to let you run the program.

I usually just get the Protools engineers to send me a final mix (s) of the show, import them and lay them under my existing timeline. I've sent plenty of aafs out to sound, but i don't know if i've ever received one back.

If i send aafs from one program to another, it usually has embedded audio in the aaf.
