What are your color management and color mode settings when designing in AI? What are your project CM settings in AE?This stuff matters and it clearly seems you're either using a different workspace than the default sRGB or use a specific proof preview that changes colro rendering.

The first thing you should do is check the Project color settings by clicking on the Bit Depth icon at the bottom of the Project panel. It is just to the left of the trash can. Then compare the color settings with the color settings for the imported file by selecting the file in the Project Panel and select File/Interpret Footage or use the keyboard shortcut Alt/Option + Ctrl/Cmnd + G and go to the Color Management tap to compare the color settings. If you are using any color management in the Project Settings/Color the easiest fix is to select Match Working Space from the top of the list. I'm not sure why that is not the default for imported footage.

I also have to ask, why are you converting the vector layers to shape layers? There is no improvement in render times or resolution, and you lose gradients, blends, and a bunch of other things that you can do. The only reason to convert a Vector layer to a Shape layer is to Extrude the layer using the C4D workspace, animate the actual path, or use the Shape Layer animators.
