There are a few more double quotes missing, and VBScript can't expand environment variables directly:
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
strComputerName = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%ComputerName%")
strService = Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsmcutil" & Chr(34) & " inst scheduler /name:" & Chr(34) & "TSM Client Scheduler" & Chr(34) & " /node:" & strComputerName & " /clientdir:" & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient" & Chr(34) & " /optfile:" & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\dsm.opt" & Chr(34) & " /password:" & strComputerName & " /validate:yes /autostart:yes /startnow:yes"
objShell.Run strService
