Sounds to me like you have the engine/transmission/torque converter in a heck of a bind somehow. Are you sure everything was meshed together and not crushed when you tightened the bellhousing bolts? It's easy to bind up the torque converter if it doesn't engage the transmission input shaft correctly.
