What is the content of that CSV file and what do you expect tshark to do with that CSV file?

Short answer: you don't.

Slightly longer answer: first you do like you suggested in your previous question and find a (magic?) way to convert a CSV file into a PCAP file. Then you feed the PCAP file into tshark.

In other words, CSV just isn't a format Wireshark or any of its utilities will understand.
