I think this happens automatically with PuTTY.  It does for me.

Are you sure it's not something in your TERM value and the
corresponding terminfo entry on the target machine?  What happens if
you type "ESC x", does Emacs on the remote see "M-x"?  If it does,
audit the PuTTY settings on the PuTTY's "Keyboard" and "Features"
panes (under "Terminal").  Maybe also "Behaviour" under "Window".
