If you planted the tomato without removing the peat pot, the roots should not have been disturbed and the plant should not be suffering transplant shock, but perhaps it is. Try putting it in the shade until it recovers and be sure to water well but allow the excess water to drain from the planter. Hope it perks up soon!
