The new gauge lights may be drawing less current than the dash lights. Does the dimmer control still work with the new gauge lights? If not, it would seem you are not correct wire for the dash lights. If the dimmer does work then remove the bulbs from the new gauges or disconnect them if you can, and see if the dash lights work ok then. If they do then you may need to change the bulbs to match the dash lights.
One thing to note is the dimmer control can handle only so much power. Adding more lights will increase the load on it and possibly damage the control if too much current is drawn. If you are only adding a couple of lights it will probably will be ok.
