The converter snout pilots in the end of the crank.  The pilot hole and the snout are worn.
The flex plate broke around the outside of the bolt circle in a jagged pattern but it did not come apart.

What do you mean the pilot hole is loose? It's a hole; holes don't move. 
There should be no reason to shim the pilot hole.
Describe the failure of the flex plate.
