Without testing: The problem is that you specify the source encoding. This may be the wrong one. Let Get-Content handle the source encoding. Remove the -Encoding Oem clause from Get-Content.

E.g. something like

PowerShell -Command "Get-Content 'IN_FILE_NAME' | Set-Content -Encoding UTF8 'OUT_FILE_NAME'"
