To avoid confusion: DIE is the singular of DICE. Okay? dance

First of all, the description of the solution: You cannot directly place a Shadow (black-swirly-statue thing, NOT to be confused with the Darkness, which surrounds an entire 9-square tile) onto a character as the Dungeon Master.

Nor can you deliberately walk a character into a Shadow, causing their immediate death.

There are a couple of ways to achieve this, but by far the best way, which is 100% reproducible, is to enter a local multiplayer game with at least two human-controlled characters, one of which should be Meru, and a human-controlled DM. Do not play with any AI.

On Meru's first turn, select the two mechanical dice (the yellow ones) as your starting ones, roll, and bring her onto the board in any place you wish.

On the second characters turn, select any dice you wish and bring the character onto the board on an adjacent tile.

Now, with the DM, roll the dice until you get a monster die (the green ones) which shows an image of The Shadow - it looks just like the playing piece. This is NOT the swirly vortex image: That represents the aforementioned Darkness. If you do not have a Shadow die, simply click through your dice placing any monsters away from the characters, and end everyone's turn until you come back around and are able to try again.

Once you have rolled the correct die, choose to place the Shadow on the same tile as the SECOND character. Just put it right on a space next to them. Now, on Meru's turn, roll the dice, rerolling if necessary using gems (hit cn_Y on your pad to select a die for rerolling and tab through them with cn_LB and cn_RB, hitting cn_Y on each one until you've selected them all) until you get a 'flip' die. This looks like two marks with a strike through the middle, a little like this: %

Choose the tile which the second character and the Shadow are on, and flip it any way you like. As you're playing as Meru, you'll now have the opportunity to move a character on the tile you've just flipped. Simply select the second character, and place them in the Shadow.

End your turn, and Pop! Achievement Unlocked!
