I run a simulation with a dipole (150THz-200THz) locates at the origin point, and a point time-monitor and a DFT monitor at (0,0,z=0.1mu m), the spectrum from the time-monitor (blue curves) and the DFT monitor (red curves) do not match, what is the reason?
I find the spectrum from the time monitor is the Fourier transform of the temporal signal but without timing the time-step, but cannot understand what is the spectrum from the DFT monitor.

You are right that "the spectrum from the time monitor is the Fourier transform of the temporal signal but without timing the time-step," you can multiply it if you want. Spectrum from a time monitor is just to provide un-normalized result, eg, not normalized with the source power.
The spectrum from the DFT monitor is normalized with the source power. Please refer https://optics.ansys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034394234-Understanding-frequency-domain-CW-normalization
