after running the 14/2 wire for 4 50w halogen pot lights in series on
1 switch on a 15A breaker, I installed 1 pot light with a dimmer
switch. This worked wonderfully well and I can dim the 1 pot light
with the installed dimmer switch. After I installed the remaining 3
pot lights, the 4 pot lights dimmed even if the dimmer switch was not
lowered down. What could have caused the lights to go very dim and
cannot be controlled by the dimmer ?

I would first bypass the switch and see if the lights still dim. If
they don't, sounds like a bad switch.
If the lights still dim even after bypassing the switch, then is it
possible you wired thses lights in series rather than in parallel?
