Create a folder on your Mac's desktop. Then you can copy the files from your iTunes directory on your PC to the folder you created on the Mac. Then drag the folder you created into the iTunes Library window and it will import them into iTunes on your Mac. After that you can delete the folder you made (since all the music would have been copied into the Music folder).
