If the original file is widescreen, you'd setup an anamorphic 16:9 widescreen, or transcode the material so it is permanently letter boxed. Anamorphic would be a better choice as if you do playback on a widescreen TV, it should scale appropriately.
In terms of exactly how to do that in iDVD, I'm not sure (I really don't use it, I use different products for authoring), but at least with the knowledge of anamorphic, you should be able to do a search thru the iDVD manual to find how to set it up for that.My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

1. Open iDVD
2. Click "Create New Project"
3. Save it.
4. Drag the video clip into iDVD.
5. If you don't want a menu, click View -> Show Map. Then, arrange the video clip before the menu, click it, click Advanced -> Loop.
6. Burn.IMac 24" (3.06GHZ, 4GB RAM, 1 TB 7200);Macbook Pro 17" (2.93 GHZ, 4GB RAM, 160 GB SSD) ; Iphone 3Gs Black (32 GB)
