 I am not aware of any direct Dimensions->RTC migration tool provided by IBM.   

There is a Subversion->RTC migration tool, so if you can find a Dimensions->Subversion migration tool, you could do it in two steps (Dimensions->Subversion, Subversion->RTC).
Or you can script it using the RTC command line (create an RTC sandbox on a stream with the components you want to import into, and then for each baseline in Dimensions you want to bring over into RTC, delete any files/folders under the component roots in that sandbox, extract that baseline from Dimensions into the RTC sandbox, checkin the sandbox changes into RTC).

 No, there's no tool. We migrated by scripting baselines extractions from Dimensions and then coding checkin, delivery and snapshots in RTC using standard names for snapshots.
