Let's deal with one library only.  For the moment, leave Automake out of
the picture, this is a mere issue of how to write 'make' rules.

Am I right in that the input files to dlltool in this case are
foo.dll and foo.def, and the output is the import library libfoo.a?

Then write
  libfoo.a: foo.dll foo.def

for each library.  If you can require GNU make (which I guess you can),
then you can write one pattern rule
  lib%.a: %.dll %.def

Well, I could tell you that Libtool can create DLLs plus import
libraries (it names them libfoo.dll.a), but I don't think you want
to hear that at this point.  ;-)
