Dimmer Switch Tripped Breaker

I recently made the 3 lights that I had in the basement into 10 can lights. I also added a dimmer switch to that, which made the GFI in the garage permanently tripped. Therefore the outlets outside do not work at all because there is only one breaker. What should I do?

I'm no expert, but it appears you have overloaded the circuit. I'd call an electrician to fix it. Sometimes we can't do everything ourselves.
