"The Eventus output files has the date in the format, the # of days
since 1/1/60 (for example 8614)"

This is Stata's format for recording dates  also. Just read in the
EVENTUS dates and create formats for them in Stata.

The date now visually looks the same as my stata date. However, stata fails to match the dates. There must be something going on behind the scenes, but i can't figure out what.
