Any idea how to define the file extension association within CDE.

I need to tell dtfile (the file manager) to open *.log files as text documents and not emails...

Look at /usr/dt/appconfig/types/C/datatypes.dt
The syntax is somewhat confusing, but you should be able to modify one of the examples given.
