Does anyone know if ACS4.1 can work with ASA5510 with TACACS+ authentication or I have to use RADIUS? Please also provide  me some steps or link on how to go about it if possible.

Well, I don't have specific knowledge on that version...  but the ASA will certainly work with TACACS+ for authentication.    

Here are links showing the configuration examples on the ASA with TACACS+, hopefully it will get you going...

What I am trying to do is configure such that the ASA administrator should be logging into the device via the ACS 4.1 server.   The ASA device is reporting an AAA decode failure....server secret mismatch.

TACACS (as well as radius) use a key to provide the encryption between the server and clients.     If the keys don't match, you might see an error like this.  


Here's another excellent paper that's worth a read:
