Your data is in a projected coordinate system, and the units you're getting from STY and STX are returning values in the units of that coordinate system (probably feet). Unfortunately MSSQL Server doesn't support projecting your data on the fly like PostGIS does. So what you'll have to do - if possible - is to load a copy of your data projected to WGS84 ...

[WARNING: A gratuitous promotion of a product I am involved with] We have been working on a tool to do ETL. It is similar in flavor to FME but designed for simpler tasks and to require less expertise to use. Some details can be found at https://www.geoactive.it just look for information on Data Dragon. This application uses GDAL/OGR in the back end and we ...

I wasn't able to locate an API method in QGIS to do it, but there is a GDAL function: GDALRasterizeGeometries (there are a couple of variants.) This method is used internally by gdal_rasterize.

If anyone is still ever looking at this and are interested in scripting instead of batching, you can use the glob module in python to search through your directory that contains the .csv's, and then use one of the arc tools (feature class to feature class, copy features, etc.) as mentioned above. You can download the glob module for free, but I think it ...
