As Josh was mentioning, you need to explicitly include the -s and -stype pdb flag.
Try the following:
catdcd -o output.pdb -otype pdb -mae m3-p2_9-out.cms -stype pdb -s "original PDB used to make the cms file"

I tried command:
catdcd -o output.pdb -otype pdb -mae m3-p2_9-out.cms
but it failed with messages:
Cannot write timesteps in 'pdb' format without structure file.
